The doctor is in the house! Today on the show, the doctor of rock, Clem Burke is here! Listen in as Damian sits down with the legendary drummer to discuss witnessing the birth of punk first hand and the journey that led him to the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. From being caught in the middle of the Patti Smith/Blondie divide, to his brief time as Elvis Ramone, to producing power pop classics, to Iggy's love of a bad show: THIS IS NOT TO BE MISSED!!!
