Nice picture, thanks for posting it. Bad Religion were probably guests of Bruce's radio show back in 1994/1995 and I guess that could have been when the picture was taken.
@MrKnickerbocker how cool is that? Bruce with Bad Religion. Looking at all the people in the picture and the haircuts, I guess this must be 1995 (or else 1994).

I wish I could find the exact date / place / occasion of this meeting. I do not think they came near each other during their tours in 1994 and 1995. I have the weird but not impossible idea that Bruce and Bad Religion rehearsed / recorded / visited each other in the same studio.
Bad Religion recorded their The Gray Race album in New York in October, November 1995. And toured earlier that year and probably also rehearsed/prepared in a studio in California.
Bruce might have been busy with (preparing) the Skunkworks album around that time.
@GhostofCain do you know where (and when) Skunkworks was recorded?
Bruce mentions something about his early BBC Radio 1 show being recorded live in London and Manchester (Chapter Pirate Radio off What Does This Button Do?), but also could have been flown somewhere to interview the band, like was the case with WASP.Was that show hosted in London?
I looked up Bruce on wikipedia and it says his show ran from 2002 to 2010? Is that right? I could have sworn it was started while he was still solo.Thanks. So the BBC radio show theory was probably right then.
The wikipedia data refer to the BBC 6 Music shows; he started in 2002 with two really entertaining shows (The Freak Zone, with very diverse music being played showing his eclectic taste from Basque folk to prog rock, and the Rock Show) and from 2004 ended up focussing on just one (The Rock Show).I looked up Bruce on wikipedia and it says his show ran from 2002 to 2010? Is that right? I could have sworn it was started while he was still solo.
Or did he have other radio shows apart from the 6 music one?
