Wayne Kramer of legendary rock 'n' roll group The MC5 chronicles his discovery of rock and roll, and the beginnings of the group. He tells the unique story of a band that supplemented the usual excesses with radical politics of the White Panther Party, FBI surveillance, wiretapping and more.
"The heart of the book is an intimate portrait of Kramer's post-MC5 life. His story is a revolutionary one, but it is also the deeply personal struggle of an addict and an artist. From the glory days of Detroit to the junk-sick streets of the East Village - in and out of prison and on and off drugs - this is the classic journeyman narrative, but with a twist: Kramer is here to remind us that revolution is always an option."
