How I Fell In Love With Punk Rock - Duncan Wilder Johnson

Now in Print / Literature
Duncan Wilder Johnson's
How I Fell In Love With Punk Rock



"Think spoken word has to be about sensitivity and women's issues?
Think again, Duncan Wilder Johnson is a spoken word artist and he's pretty metal."
-San Francisco Weekly

NOW IN PRINT: Boston Author Duncan Wilder Johnson has a punk rock heart. Known around Boston as a hardworking apostle of rock with a heavy metal work ethic - he is a musician, a writer, a monologist, a photographer, a graphic designer, and successful show promoter. A new autobiographical book - an entry for those outside the punk rock universe, provides an insider's view on the rise of punk. And, on a more personal level, "How I Fell in Love With Punk Rock," is a coming of age story with insights on how a teen becomes influenced by this music and embarks on a continuing road to becoming a man. Entertaining, Honest and Embracing, this is insightful stuff.
