TMP159 Ross Johnson is the Baron of Love
The original drummer with Tav Falco’s Panther Burns, he had already appeared on Alex Chilton’s “Like Flies on Sherbert” performing “Baron of Love” and cemented his place in Southern fringe folklore. His memoir, ”Baron of Love: Moral Giant,” chronicles the long, strange trip, while his latest band, TURNT, with fresh offerings like “Methadone Takeout Party,” keeps the toes tapping and the tongues wagging. Treat yourself to a taste before this stuff coagulates.
Topics include the heat, a geriatric intervention, insider dealing, the mayor’s race, a first gig, meeting Jim Dickinson, a first firing, band history, “Sugar Ditch Revisited,” a European tour, opening for the Clash, an infamous gig, married but dating, a solo record, interviewing Iggy and the Stooges, a birthday set, a Berlin trip, George the Max, and much more.
