Youth, energy, angst and bravado — that's the stuff of punk music. But it turns out youth may be the least critical part of the equation.
For 38 years, Milo Aukerman and Bill Stevenson have been pounding out punk music as Descendents, along with their fellow bandmembers Karl Alvarez and Stephen Egerton. They started their band in high school, and now they're in their early fifties. Their new album, Hypercaffium Spazzinate, gets its name from Aukerman's days working in the field of molecular biology.
