There’s a pretty good chance you are at least familiar with the name D. Boon. You might even be aware that he fronted San Pedro’s Minutemen, the punk band that was too weird for even most punks, until his tragic death in a car accident in 1985. But what else do you really know about him? Time has been kind to the Minutemen legacy, particularly to their 1984 double album, Double Nickels on the Dime, but it has been less kind when it comes to the people in the band. That’s where we come in.
Grab your pens and notebooks, and be prepared to take notes, because we’re going to give you a little history lesson on the late guitarist below.Add to My Radar

Interesting story for you Every Time I Die fans. It seems frontman Keith Buckley has been keeping himself fairly busy outside ETID…sorta.
Buckley has announced plans to release his first book, SCALE. It’s being billed as a “semiautographical novel,” and it’s due out about a year from now through Rare Bird Books. Here’s the official announcement from the publisher:
Known as the vocalist and lyricist for the critically acclaimed punk rock act Every Time I Die, which has sold hundreds of thousands of records worldwide and amassed a substantial fan base while touring the globe for over the past decade, Keith Buckley announces the Winter 2015/2016 publication of his semi-autobiographical debut novel, SCALE, with Los Angeles-based Rare Bird Books.
Ray Goldman will outdrink you, out-party you and, unfortunately for him, probably outlive you. As a hopeless and struggling indie rock musician, Ray’s best chance of discovering any beauty and purpose in his dysfunctional life will come only when he ceases to struggle against life itself. These are his memoirs.
SCALE chronicles Ray Goldman’s journey downward through the adversarial trials that sometimes prove necessary in facilitating an eventual ascent into truth and happiness. The odd chapters of the novel find Ray, now a 31-year-old guitar player, seeking fulfillment in the wake of a life-altering tragedy while the even chapters see him reflecting on the depravity and selfishness that hastened his descent towards it. SCALE is about the relationship between instability and balance, death and resurrection, perception and reality, but ultimately it is about the endless war waged between our disquieted minds and our noble hearts.
Fans of pop culture, Americana, Punk Rock music, and Charles Bukowski’s HAM ON RYE…lookout!
Stay tuned, boys and girls. We’ll keep you posted as more information becomes available!Add to My Radar

Cover songs are like a box of chocolates; you never know what you’re going to get. We here at Dying Scene love hearing punk bands do their own take on other band’s songs. Sometimes they pull off amazing interpretations of old classics, sometimes they’re not much more than humble tributes to a fellow artist, and other times they’re just downright laughable renditions of otherwise great songs. Good or bad. Intriguing or mundane. We’ll let you be the judge.
Today’s cover comes from San Pedro’s Minutemen and their cover of the classic Creedence Clearwater Revival tune “Fortunate Son”. The original version appeared on CCR’s 1969 album Willy and the Poor Boys, while the Minutemen version was recorded in 1981 for the Joy EP, but was not released until 1987 on the cassette edition of Ballot Result.
You can listen to both versions of “Fortunate Son” below.Add to My Radar
