  1. I was a big fan and I still listen to SD but since I found out he’s a flaming woke liberal
    I no longer attend shows. I walked out when he cursed out President Trump! He’s a
    hard working punk rocker you’d think he’d be a 100% patriotic american but he isn’t!
    I have no more respect for him as a american but as a musician I still love his music.
