Three Words: Punk Rock Dads. Without going into any detail at all, just the idea that anyone would make a documentary film about Punk Rock Dads is so golden. I mean, seriously: taking the ultimate anti-authoritarian pop-culture figure and putting him in the position of being the iron-fisted authority in a child’s life is both wildly fascinating and unbelievably hilarious. So, convincing me to check out the new film, The Other F Word, (the “F” standing for Fatherhood) directed by Andrea Blaugrund Nevins was a total no-brainer. Because, Punk Rock Dads!
Flea (born Michael Balzary) bassist for The Red Hot Chili Peppers turns 47 today, having been born on October 16th, in 1962! Flea just wrote a very nice eulogy/tribute for the recently passed Brendan Mullen that ran in the LA Times on Wednesday, which you can read at this link. Happy Birthday, Flea!
