After Hours at the Burgundy Room
Episode 006: Keith Morris
Keith Morris is a punk rock icon who has influenced everyone from Green Day to Nirvana. A boisterous kid from Hermosa Beach, who wanted nothing more than to sidestep inheriting his father's bait and tackle empire, Keith helped launch the hardcore punk movement that steamrolled through Southern California in the late '70s, as lead vocalist and founding member of Black Flag and The Circle Jerks. In between creating a new genre of music and helping define an era, Keith Morris has played with...
Episode 005: Bruce Witkin
In 2007, Johnny Depp said of Bruce Witkin: “This guy is someone I've known for 30 years. He's a brother. We worked in bands together, we were on the road together, we lived together.” One of those bands was The Kids, which Bruce started in Florida back in 1978, and with whom he and Johnny would move out to L.A. with seeking fame and fortune. Cut to almost 40 years later and Bruce and Johnny are in another band together, a little rock supergroup called the Hollywood Vampires, featuring Joe...

Episode 003: Lias Saoudi
Lias Saoudi, lead singer of the English rock band Fat White Family, has been described as a drink and drug-wracked nihilist degenerate, not to mention an enthusiast of onstage nudity, Nazi history, and animal carcasses. A self-professed humanitarian, Lias rejects the nihilist label, but he’s got no problem talking drugs, art, politics, fascism, classism, gentrification, yuppification, or anything else you want to throw his way. His band’s the most exciting thing to come out of the U.K. in...

Episode 001: Sanchez, Drug Dealer to the Stars
“Drug dealer to the Stars” is a pretty heavy title, but it's one our guest "Sanchez" (not his real name) has worn for three decades. A self-professed “hardcore 70s kinda guy,“ Sanchez has dealt drugs to rockstars and movie stars as well as doctors and lawyers. He also happens to be a movie aficionado, sports fanatic, and one of the most amiable guys you'll meet. We’re not looking to glorify drugs or dealing drugs in this episode, but we’re also not looking to play judge; what we’re...
