JOHN JOSEPH Author. Ex-con. Ex-drug addict. Musician. Street hustler. Triathlete. Author. 30 Year Vegetarian / Vegan. Lifelong New Yorker and the frontman of the legendary Cro-Mags. Icon of Hardcore / Punk Rock music which was born in the burnt-out buildings where he squatted on the lower east side of Manhattan. John formed the Cro Mags in 1981. Before, during, and after his time in the Cro-Mags, Joseph served as an occasional roadie and spiritual hooligan for the Bad Brains on several tours. Since the Cro Mags breakup John kept himself busy with music - criss-crossing the globe with Modes of Ignorance, Bloodclot, Fearless Vampire Killers, and most recently the reformed Cro Mags. He’s currently writing a screenplay for a movie based on his experiences, but guess what? You can catch the stories told first–hand before they hit the big screen.
John's books are currently available in the Rocks Off store:
