Mike Hudson was founder and lead singer of Cleveland's legendary punk rock band the Pagans, who performed with Patti Smith, the Ramones, the B-52s and other leading lights of the era. In a prose style reminiscent of Hunter Thompson and William Burroughs, Hudson paints a stark insider's portrait of a life lived outside society's boundaries.
