Turned Out A Punk

Damian Abraham has been many things... the singer of a critically acclaimed band, a failed VJ and food network host, one of the minds behind TV's "The Wrestlers", parent of 3... and undeniably, a punk music obsessive. Each week, he sits down and chats with an interesting person from various walks of life to find out how their world was influenced and changed by the discovery of a novelty genre that supposedly died out in 1978... PUNK!



Episode 325 - Jeff Gunnells (Cold As Life, H8Inc., Ramallah)

Few legends loom larger in punk than that of Detroit's COLD AS LIFE. Today on the show, Cold As Life's guitarist turned vocalist, JEFF GUNNELLS sits down with Damian to talk about the reality behind the infamy. From open warfare with the bouncers at Blondies, to checking Insane Clown Posse's egos at their first show and so much more; this is NOT TO BE MISSED.
