Keith Morris is a true punk icon. No one else embodies the sound of Southern Californian hardcore. Short and sporting waist-length dreadlocks, 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 40-year career, he's battled diabetes, drug and alcohol addiction, and the record industry. My Damage is more than a book about the highs and lows of a punk rock legend, however.

Loved the book. Recommend to anyone with even a slight interest in contemporary music history. Only critique is that I would've preferred to hear Keith's charismatic voice telling the story, as opposed to an actor, who did a fine job, but He's not Keith...
