Prior to forming Flogging Molly, Dublin-born Dave King was the lead singer for heavy metal band Fastway which featured guitarist Fast Eddie Clarke of Motörhead and bassist Pete Way of UFO.
Apparently, this is known as “Celtic Punk”, but you know how much I dislike labeling music as this-or-that. Flogging Molly are a lot of things, all of them furious and fantastic.
This is great music for a sunny Friday of the Canada Day long weekend.
All along, all I’ve really wanted to be is a writer. So now I tell people that’s what I am, even though I haven’t earned a dime being a writer.
That being said, I’ll confess that once a day, every day, I wish I was still a musician. That was the one time in my life when I was cool.
