SoCal harcore legend KEITH MORRIS has his autobiography published next month.
My Damage: The Story Of A Punk Rock Survivor is literally that, charting the former BLACK FLAG, CIRCLE JERKS and OFF! frontman's life, from his Hermosa Beach childhood working in his father's bait shop, through his first experiences with drugs - from a friend who worked in a zoo! - to the formation of Black Flag and beyond, along the way appearing in classic movies The Decline of Western Civilization and Repo Man, and battling drug and alcohol addiction, diabetes and the music industry.
Co-written with noted punk fanzine writer Jim Ruland, My Damage is published by Da Capo on 30 August. It's available to pre-order here.
Morris currently fronts FLAG alongside original Black Flag members Chuck Dukowski, Dez Cadena and Bill Stevenson and guitarist Stephen Egerton. They play Camden Underworld, London on Tuesday 2 August and Rebellion, Blackpool on Thursday 4 August.
