Details of Social Distortion and the Ticket Luck value
L.A. punk band Social Distortion came in to being when L.A. punk scene inspired Ness formed the group in 1978 with drummer Casey Royer and brothers Frank (bass) and Rikk Agnew (guitar). When the brothers left to join the Adolescents, Ness' schoolmate Dennis Danell joined on bass; the next few years saw a series of line-ups changes. When the group finally recorded its debut album, Mommy's Little Monster in 1983, the band consisted of Ness, Danell (now on guitar), bassist Brent Liles, and drummer Derek O'Brien. Often described as a punk version of the Rolling Stones, and Another State of Mind, the band, however took four years to record a follow-up, since Ness became an addict. Liles and O'Brien left, and Ness, after recovering, finally regrouped in 1988, having John Maurer on bass and Chris Reece on drums. Together, they recorded Prison Bound, possessing rock influences with a country feel.
Their self-titled 1990 effort included a cover of Johnny Cash's Ring of Fire and returned the group to MTV via Ball and Chain. Their most famous album, Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell produced a trivial radio hit in Bad Luck and keeping with their now-established blend of punk, blues, country, and rockabilly.
after a long gap, Social Distortion reappeared on the music scene in 1996 with White Light, White Heat, White Trash, which proved to be a moderate hit on MTV and modern-rock radio; former Black Flag and D.O.A. drummer Chuck Biscuits made his debut on the album, following the departure of Reece. Live at the Roxy followed in 1998, and a year later Ness issued a pair of solo albums, Cheating at Solitaire and the covers collection Under the Influences. 38-years-old Danell died on February 29, 2000 due to a brain aneurysm. In the fall of 2000, Jonny Wickersham signed on as the group's new guitarist, and Charlie Quintana took over on drums from the often busy Biscuits. After extensive touring, the band went back into the studio in 2004 to record Sex, Love and Rock 'n' Roll.
Considered to be one of the pioneering bands of the original punk rock movement out of Orange County, California and their style closely associated with the Ramones, in the mid-80's there was a notable change in their style of music - taking more from their country music and classic rock and roll roots.
