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.

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...
