Lately, Jesse Dayton's been a busy man. The Texas singer and guitarist just got off tour with legendary L.A. punk band X, where he'd been filling in for Billy Zoom on guitar, and is currently on the road opening for Jonny Two Bags and Scott H. Biram as part of the Blood and Thrash Tour.
Despite his rigorous touring schedule, Dayon's best known for the music he created for the bands which appeared in two of director Rob Zombie's films: Banjo & Sullivan in The Devil's Rejects, and Captain Clegg & The Nightcreatures in Halloween II. We spoke with him by phone from Atlanta, where he and his band were taking a break from practice for their current tour.
