Sometimes you get a chance to meet and talk to someone that truly is a wealth of information. Danny Dorman, guitarist/bassist, is one of those people. He is almost like a guy that these young kids getting into punk should be required to talk with after they finish reading American Hardcore. Danny has played with some of the biggest and best names in punk rock and isn’t slowing down.
Last week I ask Danny about the bands he played with and some of the albums he recorded. This week I decided to ask him about late author and punk rocker, Eddie Little.
1. Sometime in late 2002, early 2003, you met Eddie Little. Tell us a bit about that meeting.
Ok I met Eddie Little in the detox ward of Tarzana treatment center, I was in there kicking a 7 year methadone habit with speedballs and benzos on top, and Eddie Little came in off pretty much the same thing.
2. Did you and Eddie cross paths outside of rehab? Did he see you perform?
I remember meeting him at the La Luz de Jesus gallery a while before that, one of his books just came out. I don’t know if he’s seen me play before.
3. Did Eddie ever share any of his writings with you?
No, I remembered him from the LA weekly, and when it was visiting time and my pal Stan came to visit me, he was also getting a visit, and Stan asked him about that movie “Another Day in Paradise” and there was a joke about the Flintstones he wanted to him to tell us.
