Publisher's Summary

The long awaited republishing of NYHC Legend, John Bloodclot Joseph's raw and unfiltered autobiography. As real as it gets!

Updated with new chapters.

In his newly updated autobiography, NYHC legend John Bloodclot Joseph recounts his hard times and spiritual redemption. A traumatic childhood in foster homes was just the beginning of John's evolution. Before fronting one of the most important bands in the underground punk scene, the Cro-Mags, John faced homelessness, addiction, betrayal and insanity. Still, even his success couldn't save him from a relapse that set him back to square one - rock bottom. The book is a raw and unapologetic autobiography about his life. Consider yourself warned.

    Story
    "Captured me from beginning to end!"

    There are so many stories in this book that could be their own books. I found myself waking up in the morning looking forward to listening and waiting to go inside to see my family until the section I was listening to was completed.
    The author telling about these events in his own words made it even better. I would tell my wife about some of the stories and I would start taking like the writer to relay them.
    I cannot imagine going through what he's been through and coming out the other side at all - and definitely not with a positive mental attitude. Salute to this man, his story, and his evolution.

    "John Joseph, thanks for this brother."

    No words can express how good this book is. I feel lucky to have found it. So many stories. I hope he writes more memories of old New York. John Joseph was always one of my "heroes" but after checking this out I consider him my friend.

    "OUTSTANDING!"

    This book takes the reader on a hell of a roller coaster ride! That ride starts on page one and doesn't let up until the very last page of the very last chapter.

    The audible makes you feel like your sitting in a room with the man himself as he recounts his shocking life story. All the while your jaw is laying on the floor trying to process what this guy has been through.

    John Joseph … PART SINNER, PART SAINT… 100% CRO MAG.

    Don't make the mistake of thinking this is a book just for fans of the cro mags. I didn't know anything about the band or John Joseph; but I'm a huge fan now.

    I hope others will enjoy this book as much as I did.

    "Great listen."

    The first audio book in years that I couldn't wait to get back to and actually listened to it in it's entirety. Perfect timing of finding this at such a low point in my life. I will be seeing his band in a couple of weeks as well.
    Thanks John. Much appreciation.
