Product Details

A contemporary classic, Please Kill Me: The Uncensored Oral History of Punk is the definitive oral history of the most nihilistic of all pop movements. Iggy Pop, Richard Hell, the Ramones, and scores of other punk figures lend their voices to this decisive account of that explosive era.

It is the number one best-selling Punk book of all time. It has been published in 12 languages and helped launch the oral history trend in music books. 

The 20th anniversary edition features new photos and an afterword by the authors.

AUTHORS
Legs McNeil

Legs McNeil is the co-author of Please Kill Me: The Uncensored Oral History of Punk, a book widely hailed as the Punk "Bible". One of the founders of the seminal Punk magazine that gave the movement its name, he is a former editor at Spin and editor-in-chief of Nerve. He is also the co-author of The Other Hollywood: The Uncensored Oral History of the Porn Film Industry, and co-wrote the book "I Slept With Joey Ramone: A Family Memoir" with Mickey Leigh.

Legs currently writes articles for VICE, and is reveling in his and Gillian McCain's newest release: Dear Nobody, The True Diary of Mary Rose, which is a real life Go Ask Alice; it is a gritty, powerful, no-holds-barred Diary of a fifteen year old named Mary Rose as she goes on a search of unimaginable extremes to find love and acceptance that eventually costs her life.
