DEAD KENNEDYS drummer D.H. Peligro (ex-RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, NAILBOMB, SSI) has been tapped to play the lead in the action movie "The Four Horsemen". The film is described as having the intrigue of "Clear and Present Danger" (Harrison Ford), the gritty of "Traffic" (Michael Douglas), and the fast-paced action of "Lethal Weapon" (Mel Gibson/Danny Glover).
"I'm performing my own stunts in this movie which means I have to stick to a strict workout regimen," says the rocker, who besides acting is the frontman of a menacing rock trio simply called PELIGRO. "It's tough, but unlike some of today's top action stars who depends mostly on stunt doubles to make them look good, I'm doing my own stunts and [plan to] give people their money's worth."
When asked how it feels to have such a great musical impact on so many people Peligro responds, "It's mind-blowing. While touring with the DEAD KENNEDYS, I would see kids and adults worldwide singing along to our songs and sporting their DEAD KENNEDYS t-shirt. It shows how much love people have for us after all these years."
DEAD KENNEDYS will celebrate their 25th Anniversary with a show at the Key Club in Los Angeles on Tuesday, August 19, 2003. Opening for DEAD KENNEDYS will be punk legends DR. KNOW. In addition, the band will take part in a DVD signing at Tower Records Sunset Strip (8601 Sunset Blvd., West Hollywood, CA) on Monday, August 18 at 7:00 p.m. Original band members East Bay Ray, Klaus Flouride and Peligro will be signing copies of their latest DVD, "In God We Trust, Inc. – The Lost Tapes", recently released by Music Video Distributors. The first 100 fans to purchase the DVD at the signing will also receive a complimentary ticket to the 25th Anniversary Key Club show the following night.
