Happy Birthday, Mike Ness of Social Distortion!!

Social Distortion has been my favorite band since I was 13.  I don't think I've stuck with any other band/artist that long.  I've been blessed to interview Mike Ness twice and the second time I worked up my courage to pour my heart out a little bit and tell him how much him, his band, and their music have meant to me over the years.  I remember saying that no matter where I was in life or what was going on that his music had always been there for me.

He simply said, "That's too."

How perfect is that?
