Riverfront Times recently conducted an interview with Social Distortion guitarist Jonny “2 Bags” Wickersham. In that interview, he reveals a little information about a solo album he’s been working on, which will also feature drummer Pete Thomas (of Elvis Costello & The Attractions) and bassist Davey Faragher (Elvis Costello & The Imposters). He explains:
“I mostly catch up with all the stuff I had been neglecting while on tour. There’s always stuff to do. But outside of that, I’ve been doing some recording of my own. I’ve slowly been working on [an album]. I’m in no rush, really. I’m going to have some great musicians on it–people I admire. I have Pete Thomas (Elvis Costello & The Attractions) playing drums. And Davey Faragher (Elvis Costello & The Imposters) plays on a couple songs. He’s an incredible harmony singer too.”
Jonny’s band Social Distortion is currently on tour with Chuck Ragan and Sharks, where they are supporting their new album “Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes”, which came out almost four months ago. Weeks after the release of “Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes,” frontman Mike Ness stated that there will be another album.
