#002 Al Barr (Dropkick Murphys)

Dropkick Murphys frontman Al Barr has played more shows than you’ve had hot dinners. He sang with The Bruisers for ten years before even joining Dropkick Murphys, which means he’s been around long enough to know a thing or two about a thing or two, and in Episode Two of Life In The Stocks he schools Matt on the early punk scene in Boston, shares his memories of jamming with Bruce Springsteen, reveals how I'm Shippin' Up To Boston ended up in a Martin Scorsese movie, and discusses the inspiration behind the band’s latest album ‘11 Short Stories of Pain & Glory’.
