The Last Bookstore is pleased to present Keith Morris, author of MY DAMAGE: THE STORY OF A PUNK ROCK SURVIVOR. He will be joined by people of all ages, sexes, and class levels who were part of the «Punk Rock» scene in Southern California. Joining Keith will be Pleasant Gehman («Showgirl Confidential», «Escape From Houdini Mountain» and «Princess Of Hollywood»),Jack Grisham («An American Demon: A Memoir», «Code Blue A Love Story» and «A Principle Of Recovery») and Terry James Graham («Punk Like Me»).

Keith Morris is a true punk icon. No one else embodies the sound of Southern Californian hardcore the way he does. With his waist-length dreadlocks and snarling vocals, Morris is known the world over for his take-no-prisoners approach on the stage and his integrity off of it. Over the course of his forty-year career with Black Flag, the Circle Jerks, and OFF!, he's battled diabetes, drug and alcohol addiction, and the record industry...and he's still going strong.

MY DAMAGE is more than a book about the highs and lows of a punk rock legend. It's a story from the perspective of someone who has shared the stage with just about every major figure in the music industry and has appeared in cult films like The Decline of Western Civilization and Repo Man. A true Hollywood tale from an L.A. native, MY DAMAGE reveals the story of Morris's streets, his scene, and his music--as only he can tell it.

Keith Morris is a cofounding member of Black Flag, the most recognizable name in West Coast punk, and the Circle Jerks, which cemented his reputation at the forefront of hardcore vocalists. He has recorded over fifteen albums, appeared on countless albums and compilations, and has a half-dozen film credits to his name. The intensity of the music produced by his latest bands OFF! and FLAG are equal to his best work from the '70s, '80s, and '90s, and add to a legendary career that is still being carved out one gig at a time.
