Steve Soto – The Man!

Ok, I am just going to continue on with my Music Theme today. Today’s issue (Vol 8 No 42) of the OC Weekly has a cover feature called “The 129 Greatest OC Bands Ever.”
Now, folks here in Orange County love to complain that the OC Weekly is just a fluffy *supposed* indie (owned by the Village Voice Conglomerate) with bad writing, lame features, and lots of backstabbing gossip. But for once, the OC Weekly got it right: of the 129 bands ranked in the article, No Doubt is 118 of 129, and Lit is 127, where as tons of more worthy bands were up in the top 100.
The best part is that Mr. Steve Soto recieved #1 (Adolescents), #9 (Joyride), #35 (Agent Orange) and #77 (Manic Hispanic). I do believe not a single other OC musician can claim so many of the bands that he/she have been in, or is still in, so far up in the list or even ranking at all. Congratulations Steve, you can now add #1 to your title next to “The Nicest Guy in Punk Rock”.
