The Offspring are one of my favourite bands of all time.
At least, they were.
By now, everybody knows that they unceremoniously fired their drummer, Pete Parada, for refusing the jab.
The Offspring, like many other (former) punk rock bands, no longer stick it to the man. Rather, they stick it in their arm (to paraphrase a great cartoon by Bob Moran). They’ve become American idiots who have opted to rage for the machine.
What happened to them?
Some truly punk rock musicians who’ve shown the finger to the establishment are Right Said Fred, Zuby and Five Times August.
Pete, who drummed for The Offspring for nearly 15 years, joined me for a conversation in which he chatted about his background, musical influences, playing in various bands. his journey with The Offspring and being booted after taking a stand against the Covid™ “vaccination” nonsense.
We also reminisced about 90s music and he shared some thoughts regarding the potential threat of artificial intelligence.
