Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. D.I. is a Southern California punk band featuring ex-Adolescents and Social Distortion drummer Casey Royer on vocals. Royer formed the group after he and former Social Distortion original member Rikk Agnew (also formerly of Christian Death), left the original Mike Ness crew. Since forming in 1982, D.I. has had many line-up changes and Royer has been the only constant member of the band. The band once broke up and reformed, sometimes with former members of The Adolescents and Social Distortion (including the Agnew brothers Rikk and Alfie). The band has continued to work to this day, although they have been inactive perodically, which include the band going on hiatus between albums and Royer's March 2011 arrest for overdosing on heroin in front of his son. During their years of touring and recording albums, D.I. never gained a large mainstream success, but they have influenced many of today's later punk rock groups, including F.T.E., Face to Face, Guttermouth, Jughead's Revenge, The Offspring and Pennywise. Members of the band also joined up with Daddy X and The Dirtball of the Kottonmouth Kings, to created the Punk Rock/Hip-Hop group The X-Pistols, in 2010.show more
