It’s St. Patrick’s Day and Joe has invited Dave King from Flogging Molly and Bill Dawes into Complete Control to help him celebrate.
Dave gives Joe the low down on his musical roots growing up in Ireland, how the states are looking more like Ireland used to be in the bad old days, and even does Joe the honor of showing him how to properly pour a pint of the black stuff.
Bill Dawes joins the set and takes a few short stabs at his Irish accent before sitting for a drink with the boys and going into his sordid career in comedy and gogo dancing.
A good day to be Irish; A good day for Complete Control.
Dave King was born in Dublin but currently resides in Detroit. He has been the chief writer and lead singer of Flogging Molly since their start, but he has worked with many great musical projects throughout his life. Flogging Molly is currently signed to sideonedummy records and out on tour through the summer.
Bill Dawes is an actor and comedian that has worked in many independent and major films and will have a SHOWTIME comedy special in the fall.
