Hard-Core: Life of My Own
|Author:||Harley Flanagan & Steven Blush|
Harley Flanagan provides a fascinating memoir: a homeless child prodigy and family friend of Andy Warhol and Allen Ginsberg, at a young age he became close to many stars of the early punk rock scene like Joe Strummer of The Clash and was taught to play bass by members of the famed black punk band Bad Brains. He went on to start the notorious hardcore band Cro-Mags. From the memoir's introduction by American Hardcore's Steven Blush: 'Harley Flanagan is not like you or me...Harley came up like a feral animal, left by his hippie mother to fend for himself in the 70s.'
