Car Con Carne

Sep 18, 2022

Bad Religion guitarists Brian Baker and “The Serb” Mike Dimkich joined me backstage at Riot 2022 before their “big font” set (that will make more sense when you listen).


Things discussed:

-How does Bad Religion break through to “the unconverted?”

-The question of who’s the better guitar player is answered.

-It sure looks like the band is still having fun: Are they, and how do they do it?

-Is Mike the “most fit” performer at Riot Fest this year?

-When will we get new music?


Chicago loves Bad Religion, and this interview is a reminder of how cool the guys are who make the music.
