Présentation de l'éditeur

No Regrets: Memoirs of a Punk recounts the author's early days on the San Francisco punk scene, and tells the tale of a young Catholic boy who escapes his conservative Texas upbringing to live the life of a free-spirited punk rocker in the San Francisco of the 1970's.

No Regrets traces the arch of a shy misfit as he rebels against his repressed Catholic upbringing and dysfunctional family to become a San Francisco punk in the late 70's. It brings to life the punk scene in San Francisco, the bands, the clubs and the author's most memorable experiences. More than this, it reveals the life-changing effect punk rock had on the author's life and how it set him on a totally different course.

A must-read for anyone who wants a peek into a unique subculture and the forces that compel a youth to break away from the mainstream to pursue a radically different kind of life.

This took place before my time, but Tony does a great job taking me there.
I enjoyed the fact that it's more about the scene/lifestyle than just the music.
I highly recommend!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 no regrets in reading this book! 17 juillet 2013

Just to be clear - READ IT! It has power and will transport you.

I had been waiting for its release and was intrigued to at least read the Preface right off. It was about sixteen pages before I could pull away. Had to return at first chance to read it straight through. I think maybe it should have been called, 'No Regrets, Memoirs of a Punk - The Transformation of Tony G Rocco'.

He nests you in the American zeitgeist, invites you in the front door of his childhood home and gives a ringside, high-def version of his formative experiences. Brutal honesty trumps all and his path leading to the San Francisco punk scene is what sticks most in my mind.

Once in San Francisco, it is a memory bending venture for those of us whose personal journeys landed us in the same life changing epicenter. For me at least, it's subjectivity adds perspective to my own same-time-same-place different-but-equally-compelling experience. His words are worth a thousand photographs - but I did kinda wish there were one or two pre SF pics. I've wondered on occasion what became of some of the people who disappeared into the two dimensional world of my box of photos.

His memoir makes me realize how little I actually knew about the people I spent time with.. the music was too good and too loud and I was too absorbed in having fun. Young as we were, it is now clear that one of the things that brought us all together to enjoy or create that scene was some discord in our short past lives or some drive to escape 'Dodge'. The seven years I spent there was so indelible, so vibrantly alive, I actually had withdrawals - and like Tony, no regrets... well maybe a few.

How funny it is to get to know someone so suddenly, in the space of a few hours of reading and what a gift that is. Tony is a brave soul to lay himself out. It's a work of art. I loved it.

In making some sense of our past and relating it to who we are now, liberating the mind seems a fine goal - but beware invisible walls. Why imagine the best is behind? It was indeed a unique time but the author certainly retains the creative energy he had back then and adventures are no doubt still to be had. I'm waiting to see what he writes next.

..... to those who shared this unrepeatable era, you have a great infusion here and, like it or not, once you've read it, a new old friend.

If you didn't live in SF at that time, here is a window to look through. An insight into the punk scene that will make you wish you had at least had a brush with all that energy.

I had just finished my first Kindle book about pucks squatting in London in the 80's ( Dirty Squatters) and was looking for more. I stumbled across this one and being that it's set in SF and that where I'm from I'd give it a read. So I bought it and I'm glad I did. The book starts with before SF with his life in Texas, the move to SF. I really enjoyed it. Never boring. Now I'm looking for another.

I really dig Tony's narrative voice, journalistic but punchy, brought to life at key moments with good dialogue. He really brings his story and the times alive. This is a great read for anyone who's been interested or influenced by punk and rebelliousness in any way. It was fun to read about Dead Kennedy's, bc I'm a fan, and to learn about other new wave punk bands and publications. But apart from all that, it's also a great coming of age story. Rock on.
