I can't believe I missed a discussion of Black Flag nestled in this troll thread.
Still one of my favorite bands after all these years. I'm old enough,and was fortunate enough to see them in the 80's with Hank as the singer, and it was a great show.
I've met the guy a few times, and he's generally ok in a sarcastic sort of way. I also lived with Chris Gates from The Big Boys, and he knows almost all of the major players from the first wave US hardcore scene, and has a lot of funny stories about HR... Some not too bad, but others aren't particularly pleasant.
My take is I can handle ALL of the band's singers, though Dez was probably my least favorite for some reason. I figure ANY Black Flag is better than 99% of the rest of the stuff I'll hear, and can appreciate it all.
Guess I should go polish my tattoo of the bars tonight.
i'd have given anything to see husker du live at any time ever.
my introduction to them was land speed record
