Here's a bizarre realization for me: Punk was born about 30 years ago! I ran into a kid in a Starbucks last week wearing a Forgotten Rebels t-shirt. I chatted him up about it, telling him that I knew the guys in that band from Hamilton all those years ago. I guess it would have been like someone coming up to me when I was in high school and telling me that they knew Chuck Berry. I would have had a polite exchange with him while thinking "good for you gramps".
Someone has made a film about Punk's 30th birthday.
