Dennes Dale “D.” Boon was born on April 1, 1958. He would have been 58 years old today. It is a day his friends and his fans choose to celebrate his epic life, short but powerful, like a shooting star
We all have our own memories, like waking up bewildered in the van on Rosarito Beach, or watching the Minutemen at parties and festivals and clubs. Their music seemed to meld the audience together as we caught each other’s eyes and smiled, knowing it just doesn’t get any better. And it never did. Kurt Shellenbach waxes nostalgic over their shared mornings in his post, Eat at Joe’s: John Wayne Special Everyone has a story.
D, There was never anyone like you, and there will never be anyone like you again. You were a driving force and a unifying voice when we needed one. You will never be forgotten. You live on in our hearts and in your music. Thanks for the ride.
