Fuck You Too The Extras and More Photographs by Glen E Friedman Author:Glen E. Friedman This Glen E. Friedman book came about due to the insistence of many of the his friends and fans who wanted to see the out takes and extras of all of the different people he had shot over the years, particularly those who were not included in FUCK YOU HEROES, from the early skateboarding days at the West Lost Angeles ... more »(DogTown) school yards and the infamous Dog Bowl, to the Punk shows and riots in Hollywood and CBGB's, from the gangster ridden streets of the Compton Hip-Hop scene to the Hollis neighborhood of Queens New York that brought the world Run-DMC and Jam Master Jay, all the way through more recent band photo sessions, to his Liberty Street protest at Ground Zero in New York City. This new hard back edition covers up to 2004, and includes an additional 13 pages not in the original!
To paraphrase an earlier Amazon.com review
This book is unbelievable, if for nothing else, just for the sheer volume of Hardcore Punk, Hardcore Hip Hop legends, Hardcore Skateboarding (much Dogtown), and MORE, all in here. Friedman's previous book was much more selective, he says this is his "scrapbook" of leftovers but he's really downplaying it, it's much much more in several ways. This one contains a way larger cast of characters and is much more relaxed in it's presentation. I think it's cool for that. (This new HARDCOVER edition is phenominal. There's almost 400 pictures in this 180 page book, and it just looks amazing, so much energy comes off the pages. It's a perfect companion to FUCK YOU HEROES with the black cover.
