Kimberley O’Brien is on kind of a musician kick this week. I just found out about Tim O’Brien the bluegrass musician, and now I learned about Derek O’Brien, a drummer who joined punk band Social Distortion when he was still in high school! That’s pretty impressive. Kimberley O’Brien knew lots of musicians in high school, but none of them were in “real” bands. And Social Distortion isn’t the only band that Derek O’Brien has worked with. He also did some stuff with Tom Morello (Chicago native and member of Rage Against the Machine) and The Adolescents. Later, when he became a studio musician, Derek O’Brien worked with even more well known musicians including Lucinda Williams, Flogging Molly, and Fishbone.
