Last year saw the release of Flanagan‘s new memoir Hard-Core, Life Of My Own (pictured below), which publisher Feral House details as:
Harley Flanagan provides a fascinating memoir: a homeless child prodigy and family friend of Andy Warhol and Allen Ginsberg, at a young age he became close to many stars of the early punk rock scene such as Joe Strummer of The Clash and was taught to play bass by members of the famed black punk band Bad Brains. He went on to start the notorious hardcore band Cro-Mags. [see more]
Harley also released his solo debut album titled Cro-Mags in 2016 (check it out below).
