Danko Jones on porn, Kiss and being your own worst critic

Danko Jones answers our heavy questions for heavy rockers

As a performer he’s been compared to “a panther on heat”. Indeed, from lo-fi garage punk origins in Toronto, Canada, Danko Jones, the frontman with the hard rockers who share his name, has grown into an entertainer of the most ferocious kind. In the process he’s sung with Lemmy, supported the Rolling Stones, written for the Huffington Post (and many others), and hosted a podcast in which he’s grilled artists like Henry Rollins and Duff McKagan.

Today, in a West London hotel, he’s softly spoken as he discusses politics, geeking out about Kiss and reflecting on a life of fire and discipline. His band’s eighth album, Wild Cat, a precision-honed display of catchy, unbridled brutality, is released this month.
