In an interview with our L.A. sister station KROQ during last weekend’s Coachella Festival, Social Distortion frontman Mike Ness revealed that he is penning an autobiography entitled “Story Of My Life” after their famous song.
“It’s been a pain in the ass. I would never want to do it again,” he admitted. “You have to go back and revisit painful periods in your life. It’s funny that everything has been aligning itself in my personal life along with the writing of this book to where it’s like more is being revealed, and it’s not all good. It’s not all bad, but I hadn’t anticipated that. It’s not like writing songs. It’s been much more in-depth and personal.”
I decided to check Amazon, and the book is already listed with a publication date of February 11, 2014. Knowing myself, I would intend to read it, get it from the library and never find time to read it, just like everything else on my summer reading list!
