David Trout

I recently picked up a 2007 retrospective album called Destroy All Music by the Weirdos, one of the earliest Southern California punk bands, having formed in late 1975.  Cliff Roman (guitar and bass) recalls:  “I saw the [New York] Dolls at the Whisky and got their autographs.  I saw the Stooges at the Whisky, and Iggy [Pop] got on my shoulders.  When he was lying on the floor, I drew a red ‘X’ on his chest, and we watched his sweat melt it as the band finished their set.  Walking out of the show, I told my friend David Trout (guitar) that we should start our own band.”
