D. Boon, guitarist, vocalist and artist extraordinaire for The Minutemen, was born on April Fool’s Day in 1958. His death, in a 1985 van accident, is one of punk rock’s greatest early losses. This video, however, celebrates the life, humor and talent of the man, along with the skills of his bandmates Mike Watt and George Hurley. Happy birthday, D. Boon, wherever you are!
