TMP152 John Thomas Griffith: Red Rockers Revisited
The Cowboy Mouth guitarist and singer started as the frontman of the Rat Finks turned Red Rockers, in the thick of the New Orleans punk scene. Hit singles (“China,” “Good as Gold”), MTV success, and exhaustive touring with U2, the Go-Go’s, and Joan Jett followed. John is obviously a kind and patient soul. That should come in handy with the Troubled Men.
Topics include a police visit, the mayor’s race, a 2nd dose, flaka, safe at home, a moose issue, a missing guest, a cumbia trio, life on the run, Aurora C.C., a Bocage house party, a car crash, George the Max, a name change, the Jam in Austin, a Boston band house, a 3rd record, Steve Walters, Darren Hill, Fred LeBlanc, livestreams, current stress, a chance encounter, and much more.
