Book Image Not Available
Overview
Imagine if your favourite punk band signed to a major label and released a hit record… Success can be a double-edged sword, and Triple Negative is feeling the pressure. Will they soar with the eagles or will they plunge into a desperate quagmire of hard drugs and even harder women like so many bands before them? The young musicians soon learn that fame is the least of their worries—that their main problem is singer Richie Dagger, who seems intent on destroying himself even as the band approaches a dizzying level of punk stardom. What inner demons compel Richie to act so outrageously? Why would he throw it all away just as everything they ever wanted is within reach? Even more importantly, how can they save the frontman from total annihilation? Or maybe is it already too late…

About the author
Born August 16, 1959 in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. Genre Literature, fiction, and punk music biographies. Influences Charles Bukowski, John Steinbeck, Irvine Welsh, Thomas Wolfe, Hubert Selby, Donald Goines, and many more. About this author Chris Walter, a recovering drug addict and hope-to-die punk rocker, began writing purposefully in 1998 after realizing that his life up to that point had been meaningless. His first published novel, Punk Rules OK went largely unnoticed except by detractors, inspiring him to take a DIY approach to the game. With help from his girlfriend who worked at a printing shop, he started GFY Press and began to write, publish, and distribute a steady stream of fiction novels and music biographies. After kicking drugs to the curb in 2001, GFY Press expanded to include unschooled troublemakers Simon Snotface, Stewart Black, and an Australian, Drew Gates, drawing further criticism from the established literary industry. More than sixteen years later, Chris Walter and GFY Press remain unrepentant and committed. Chris is the author of more than twenty-four books, many of which are available electronically. He has also contributed to numerous publications including The Georgia Straight, Nerve, Razorcake, The Big Takeover, Mass Movement, Vice, Loud Fast Rules, and Absolute Underground.
