You sure about that?

Jesse Malin (lead vocals) - also sang for the band Heart Attack and was good friends with Dave Insurgent of Reagan Youth.
Howie Pyro (bass), - was in the Blessed
Richard "The Atomic Elf" Bacchus (guitar) was in a few unknown bands,
Belvy K (drums) - was in the Catatonics, 7 Seconds and The UK Subs
Georgie Seville (guitar) - I'm not sure what he did before D Generation.

Todd Youth - was in Warzone, Agnostic Front, Murphy's law before D Generation.

But, so far as I know, none of these guys were in Reagan Youth.

You might be thinking of Al Pike.
He played bass for Reagan Youth and Samhain.
Todd Youth and Howie Pyro ended up in Danzig's band, so perhaps you have cornfused one of them with Al Pike.

Or maybe Vic from Nausea or Andy Apathy from Urban Waste.
They were both in Reagan Youth for a while.

Unless you know something I don't.

I LOVE the way Sid destroyed "My Way".
I hate Sinatra.
Sinatra called rock 'n roll "the martial music of every juvenile delinquent in America" and rock 'n' roll fans "cretinous goons"
Writing in the magazine Western World, Sinatra said, ''My only deep sorrow is the unrelenting insistence of recording and motion picture companies upon purveying the most brutal, ugly, degenerate, vicious form of expression it has been my displeasure to hear, and naturally I'm referring to the bulk of rock 'n' roll.'

So, I think it's fitting that a true 'cretinous goon' came along and destroyed that jacka$$es music.

face to face did a gorgeous cover of jawbreaker's chesterfield king. incidentally jawbreaker covered joan jett's you don't know... and no use for a name covered depeche mode's enjoy the silence, which is wicked aces because i love both no use and the mode. lagwagon's cover of bad moon rising always makes me smile, and zebrahead's live cover of the spice girls' wannabe is rad as well.
