NEW ROGER MIRET BOOK OUT THIS AUGUST
Coming this August is a new book by Jon Wiederhorn titled “My Riot, Agnostic Front, Grit, Guts & Glory” telling the story of AF’s ROGER MIRET. Below is the description…
Gangs of New York meets Mean Streets in this brutally honest memoir about surviving the treacherous 1980s Lower East Side and finding refuge and a voice in music.
Filled with danger, drugs, and abrasive music, “My Riot” is the definitive insider account of the volatile New York hardcore scene of the early 1980s. With Roger Miret as front man, legendary band Agnostic Front’s focused fury and aggression defined the times and continue to resonate today.
Born in Cuba, Roger Miret fled with his family to the US to escape the Castro regime. Through vivid language and graphic details, Miret recounts growing up in a strange new land with a tyrannical, abusive stepfather and the roles that poverty and violence played in shaping the toughness that became critical to his survival. In his teen years, he finds himself squatting in abandoned buildings with other runaways and victims of similar childhood trauma. Soon he becomes a respected and feared kingpin of the scene, and a protector of its misfits and outcasts.
Miret’s gripping memoir is a testament to the perils of growing up too young too fast and finding redemption through sheer strength, perseverance, and courage. Pre-orders can be found by visiting Amazon.com.
