Who Is Billy Bones?

Who Is Billy Bones?

"Who Is Billy Bones?" highlights the four-decade-long music career of legendary punk rock vocalist Steven “Billy Bones” Fortuna. Billy Bones was an early pioneer of the punk genre, fronting the 1977 Los Angeles punk band The Skulls with his snarling vocals and socially charged lyrics. The documentary features interviews with punk rock legends including Green Day bassist Mike Dirnt, Woolly Bandits member Christa Collins, Dr. Strange Records founder Dr. Strange and Bones' wife Christina Fortuna. The film includes never-before-seen footage of L.A.ís first punk music venue, The Masque, shot exclusively for the project, along with archive interview footage of The Masque's original proprietor, Brendan Mullen.
