excerpt:"Rising from the projects of Cleveland, Ohio, the Dead Boys took the New York punk scene by storm in the mid 1970s. Now, for the first time, Cheetah dishes on those notorious days: taking the stage at CBGB's, recording at Electric Lady Studios, fist-fighting with Iggy Pop, roller skating with the Rolling Stones, partying with John Belushi, playing with Nico, and tearing it up with Stiv Bators and the Dead Boys as they traveled to clubs and dives everywhere, spreading the gospel of punk rock.
Straight from the man, these are the untold backstage stories that every punk fan will want to hear. Never mind the Sex Pistols, here's Cheetah Chrome!
