Rock,Punk

X -- singer Exene Cervenka, singer/bassist John Doe, guitarist Billy Zoom and drummer DJ Bonebrake -- came together in Los Angeles in early 1977, Doe and Zoom (who had once played with rockabilly giant Gene Vincent) bonding over the three-chord, no-nonsense punk of the Ramones, developing their own three-chord frenzy, topped by the odd, flat, high-end harmonies of Exene and Doe. And within two years, they had conquered the burgeoning L.A. punk scene and they had Ray Manzarek of The Doors producing their first album, "Los Angeles." And from there, it was on to national fame, then worldwide acclaim, and here they are, 40 years later, much older, much wiser and much better-rounded (and Doe also pushing his very successful solo career, and Zoom now with his own model Gretsch). And in 2016-17, they're marking the milestone with a tour.
