For The Huffington Post, David Rees, author of the Rolling Stone comic Get Your War On, posts an over-the-top tribute to the Minutemen’s D. Boon on the 20th anniversary of his death. “… my career as a political cartoonist literally began the night I asked myself “What would D. Boon do?” before clumsily trying to make the comic-strip equivalent of a Minutemen song.”
The tribute is way hyperbolic, but all true. The Minutemen changed lives, mine included. Happy birthday Boon. Let the products sell themselves!
Music: The Minutemen :: Paranoid Chant
One Reply to “What Would D. Boon Do?”
D. Boon and David Rees are both heroes of mine. When Get Your War On appeared it was like a profane breath of fresh air (and it still is).
