Riley Gale forever

This week the Hardcore and Metal community took a big hit with the loss of Power Trip’s Riley Gale at the young age of 34. If you ever saw Power trip live, then you would understand as to why we are so distraught. Riley brought a special kind of energy to the stage, and off. To think that the energy is gone fills me with nothing but sadness wishing I can catch just one more Power Trip set. His legend lives on and will be missed dearly. Riley Gale Forever!

70’S BAY AREA PUNKS

Jim Jocoy, traveling between S.F. and L.A., shot portraits of every interesting punk rock personality who caught his eye—with each subject posed amidst the scene’s ruinous and chaotic environment. Some were musicians and some were artists. All were fans and enthusiasts. And they were the original creators of what is regarded as the most potent subculture of the late 20th century. Some of the more celebrated individuals of punk legend featured in this book are Darby Crash, Iggy Pop, Lydia Lunch, Sid Vicious, John Waters, Bruce Connor and members of X, The Cramps, The Avengers, Flipper, The Screamers, The Nuns, and many others.
