Publisher's Summary

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. It's also a look at rock 'n' roll through the lens of someone who has shared the stage with just about every major figure in the music industry and appeared in cult films like The Decline of Western Civilization and Repo Man. It's a Hollywood story from a native's perspective. My Damage is Morris's streets, his scene, his music - as only he can tell it.

    "A solid performance and engaging stories"

    Easy book to get through... recovery is a common theme in most rock and roll books but was a minor point here thankfully... we have heard it before but the bands and stories we're great. Well done Keith, we love you.

    "Well done..."

    Keith Morris is a living legend. This book is authentic, well written and well narrated. If you grew up in LA and experienced the greater LA punk scene in the late 70's and 80's this is a must read. But this book goes way beyond the scene he was instrumental in creating and delves into the challenges Keith wrestled with including his addictions, the duplicity of the music industry, and diabetes and brings us right up the present and the new chapter he is writing as the lead singer of Off. Well done.

    "one of the best books i have listened too"

    Kieth is the man and will always be the man. i wish i could go back in time and see the Circle jerks. out of every old school punk rock singers Kieth is my all time fave. too here these story's and know that there are people out there that would consider greenday to be punk cements something i have always preached they are not and pisses me the fuck OFF! that they would think that and there is Kieth out there busting his ass for all those years not getting the money he damn well deserves. i hope i did my part by getting this book. and hope he makes a billion dollars on it if he wasnt making music the world would have missed out on a man they took for granted. OFF! ,Circle jerks make me feel like i am 13 years old again raging down the streets on my skateboard with a crew of all my friends

    "Great insight into one of LA punk's founding fathers"

    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...

    "Good Listen!"

    I'm a long time fan of basically anything Keith Morris so I can't say if it would be as good for non fans, but if you are it's probably for you.

    If I had one knock it's that I wished there was more of it.
