John Doe–Founder-bassist of punk band X

John Doe–founder-bassist of legendary punk band X, a member of the country-folk X-offshoot The Knitters (who, after a 20-year gap, recently released a terrific new album, “The Modern Sounds Of The Knitters,” which includes the rollicking tale of a buffoon-ish slaughterhouse worker, “The New Call Of The Wrecking Ball”), acclaimed singer-songwriter as a solo artist, and an actor who’s appeared in more than 40 films–discusses the hapless character in “The New Call Of The Wrecking Ball,” the multitude of animals that live with Doe and his family, his view of the strong sense of compassion and empathy that’s cultivated in kids (and adults) who live with animals, his work providing the narration for a documentary film about animals rights, and more.
