Steve Soto, bajista y fundador de los épicos Adolescents y la legendaria Agent Orange, ha fallecido a la edad de los 54 años por causas aún desconocidas.

Desde el momento en que Tony Reflex (vocalista de Adolescents) anunció esto a través de su cuenta de Twitter, el mundo entero ha estado ridiendo tributo a uno de los héroes del punk californiano de principios de los 80.

Hoy, el tributo más emotivo hasta ahora llega por parte de Green Day & The Offspring quienes a través de sus redes sociales, ofrecieron fuertes y profundas palabras al respecto:

I have to share the story with this post. Last night around midnight I was fuming over the current political/social climate that’s reeking havoc in America. I wanted to lash out. I wanted to punch something. I wanted to scream fuck you into the ether.. alas I decided to make a playlist instead. punk rock bands that reflect my despair. Something fast loud catchy. I like drugs! I want to give you the creeps! Teenage rebel!! GIMMIE GIMMIE GIMMIE! Code blue!! I couldn’t decide which adolescents song to put on.. hmm.. Rip it up? Creatures? Kids of the black hole? The whole album is so great. Finally decided on Amoeba remembering seeing them in Sacramento in a Park in the 80s.. such a great show. Such a great song. This playlist hit the right spot for me when I needed it the most. Twisted, fucked up, brilliant. Music is a powerful tool in times of anger and sadness. Anyway an hour later I looked at Instagram and saw people eulogizing Steve Soto died. Life isn’t fair. Sometimes it just sucks.. But music can help you feel like you’re not alone. Amoeba did that for me last night. RIP Steve Soto
