“Gone Away” from The Offspring is a song of loss, grief….one that could have been a ballad rather than the version that made it onto Ixnay On The Hombre. But over the years, Dexter Holland has been taking to sitting in front of a piano and doing it in just that manner during live shows. A stripped-down, string & keys recording of the song made it on to the new album Let The Bad Times Roll….which you can check out below.
When you are done listening, check out another one of Dexter’s many talents — doing karaoke while flying an airplane. — [eric]
