You learn something new everyday I guess. Actor Josh Brolin, who’s in the new movie Sicario with Emily Blunt and Benecio Del Toro, revealed in a Yahoo Movies interview he was a founding member of California punk hardcore band Rich Kids on LSD. Never heard that (neither did his cast mates) but that’s pretty friggin’ cool!
“I was in the epicenter of it, you know?” Brolin says of the ‘80s Los Angeles punk scene. “Here [in New York] it was CBGB’s and in L.A. it was [the nightclub] Godzilla’s. And Rich Kids on LSD was the band that I helped start. And it became a very big band… We were in Santa Barbara at the time, we’d sneak out of the house every third night or whatever, and go down to Godzilla’s. It was pre-grunge, but it was real punk at the time.”
