A decade before Social Distortion broke big, a variety of musicians played with the band, including bassist Brent Liles.

Liles is now dead at the age of 43 after the bicycle he was riding was hit by a truck.

He played with the band for two years, including an independent release. It wasn’t until six years after he left the group that Social Distortion broke through to mainstream success with a self-titled release on Epic.

Meanwhile, Nelly Furtado’s Say It Right from Loose is sort of bland in comparison although it is selling massive quantities. Check out the iTunes exclusive copy for a nice twist on that and Promiscuous.
