Why is this guy climbing all over us?’" . . . . "I just have a complicated personality," he adds. "I'm a shit disturber."

      The band’s leader, Joe “Shithead” Keithley, shows no signs of slowing down. . . . He’s still an unapologetic shit-disturber, but it’s evident that the veteran antiauthoritarian is turning into something akin to (gasp!) a respected authority figure.
