Steve-O, self-described asshole, remembers the exact year he started skateboarding. It was 1985 and he had just seen Michael J Fox in Back To The Future, with his grandma. The Killer Karaoke host then started filming his skateboarding progression, using a camera his dad won. Right there folks, are the very roots of Jackass.
In part two of his Small Talk interview with ANDPOP’s Simon Mohos, he tells us all about how skateboarding weeds out the weaklings (“Even good kids are bad kids because every year by nature you’re vandalizing everything”) and that time he toured with the circus.
