In this edition of TSOYA Classics, Jesse talks with Brendan Canty, the drummer of legendary punk rock band Fugazi. Brendan has also made a name for himself as a record and film producer.

Jesse also talks with Brendan about what it feels like making a new career after 17 years with Fugazi, and about being a rock & roll dad.
