Author Relives His Partial Punk Past

LOS FELIZ, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One author’s partial punk rock past helped her most recent leap into the musical mosh pit.

The Official Punk Rock Book of Lists (Backbeat Books), collects funny and filthy lists from famous punks like Debbie Harry, Johnny Rotten, and Henry Rollins, and author Amy Wallace says her rockin’ research took her back to her life on the fringes of the freakshow.

Wallace, who co-wrote the book with notorious rocker Handsome Dick Manitoba from The Dictators, says, “I was at the last Sex Pistols concert, standing in vomit. But I was a punk rock observer, I never had really weird hair. I never fully committed.”

And while Wallace’s lude lists include punks who had sex onstage, and great moments in puking, one scandalous singer made Wallace show some shame.

She says, “We were dancing around Debbie Harry really carefully, but she turned right around and wrote a list of people she’d like to f – men and women!”

The Official Punk Rock Book of Lists hits stores in early November.
