The band Social Distortion was born in 1979. That's before many mothers were in gestation with the band's current fans."They're just getting their driver's license[s]," says guitarist Dennis Dannell, who, along with lead singer Mike Ness, has been with the veteran punk band from the beginning. "We get everything from the rainbow-tree-hugger environmentalists to skater punks to girls getting ready to go back to Catholic school."Dannell is referring to the fans who have made up most of the audience to date at the Vans' Warped Tour.

You'll never hear him preaching about it, but Mike Ness of the California punk band Social Distortion, holds his head up proudly now that he's off drugs.Ness, the band's guitar leader, has been clean and sober for nearly five years and says it gets better every day. His band's self-titled first major label release on Epic Records -- it took 10 years to get it -- has proved to be more successful than he ever thought possible and has even spawned a huge rock radio hit in "Ball and Chain."The words of the song are almost a coming out party for Ness, whose bad-boy image and life-on-the-edge style had been legendary among puck circles since the band formed in 1979.

The Rolling StonesRock and Roll Circus (Abkco 1268)On Dec. 11, 1968, the Rolling Stones gave a special performance for the BBC. Staged as a circus, but featuring rock stars instead of clowns and high-wire acts, it was intended as a TV special but was never aired. In fact, apart from a Who performance included in "The Kids Are Alright," the show languished, unseen and unheard, for 28 years. And after listening to the CD version of "Rock and Roll Circus," most fans will wonder what took them so long.

It's sometimes easy for those of us on the audience side of the stage to forget, but rock stars are rock fans, too.Take Joan Jett. Like any dedicated rocker, she's always listening to albums by her favorites, whether classic acts like Lou Reed, the Rolling Stones and T. Rex, or more recent finds like Nirvana or Social Distortion. And if you get her talking about the bands she likes, Jett sounds as enthusiastic as any fan.Occasionally, though, the Rockville-born Jett tries to do something more than just enthuse over the music, and that's where the rock star advantage comes in. Because where Joe or Jane Rockfan have to make do with writing to their idols, Jett is sometimes lucky enough to be able to write with them.

The scariest part of being a fledgling pop musician is the fea of tomorrow.Where is next gig? Will I make enough money to buy food and pay the rent? Will I ever get a record contract?All of these questions and many more have been asked by asuperb pop band from Vermont called The Boyz.The trio has been together for nearly eight years and, as truth would have it, are no longer boys but young men."Sometimes it's hard to be optimistic but we don't let it get to us," guitarist Mark Bowie said of the band's struggle to get a major recording deal.
