Dead Kennedys drummer D.H. Peligro has been to rehab 31 times. He’s also been in the Red Hot Chili Peppers and the Dead Kennedys, lived with a whole bunch of crazy addicts in San Francisco and LA, stayed half-awake through an operation when he had a liter of pus extracted from his leg and lived to tell the tale. In this week’s AfterPartyPod, he and I talk about his newfound sobriety (he was a few days from checking out of a treatment center the day of the interview), his brushes with death, the way his trauma caught up to him and his new book, Dreadknaught: King of Afropunk.
