When I lived in San Diego in the early '80s I played drums for The Rockin' Dogs. Our bass player Jane Bunting was Mojo Nixon's roommate; he taught Jane how to play bass. Hell, Mojo even opened for The Rockin' Dogs once.
I'll never forget showing up for an afternoon screening for a movie at the Ken Cinema. Lo and behold Mojo Nixon came out with a five gallon plastic water jug. Mojo jumped around banging on the jug as a drum and singing his head off as our pre-movie live entertainment. The moment was pure rock 'n' roll magic, a total surprise.
I look forward to seeing this documentary and finding out more about this amazing musician.
