I’ve spent the last 50 years of my life playing the music of the MC5. When I started, I didn’t even have a driver’s license. But what I did have was an electric guitar, and friends who saw the world the same way I did. We would meet in the basement of my house in Detroit to play. We created this music together.

The MC5’s music is among the most memorable work I’ve ever done, and I’ve done a lot. Playing the album “Kick Out The Jams” — live from top to bottom in 2018 — is as exciting a project as I could have ever imagined. And, the fact that this album has meant so much to so many over these decades and continents matters a great deal to me.

So, I welcome all from across the world, of every age, color, species, gender, and politics, to enjoy hearing it played as intended.

‘Cause right now it’s time to…
Right now it’s time to…
It’s time to…
Kick Out The Jams, Motherfuckers.
