Excellent Coffee table sized book chronicling and brimming with unseen photographs, Paul was in a band with his two brothers THE FAST this is a period in time when everything was happening at once. The only band at the time with a record deal was the NEW YORK DOLLS. and in 1974 Patti Smith, Television, Wayne County, Suicide and Blondie.
The Ramones were at CBGB’s and KISS were playing to just five people This was a small group of bands and friend almost all of were about to become icons of pop culture.
