Dead Boys 1977: The Lost Photographs
by Dave Treat Author and Ron Kretsch Editor
In this gorgeous coffee table book, discover never-before-seen photographs of the Dead Boys before they took off. Taken in 1977 by the band's roommate Dave Treat, these photographs showcase a particular moment in music history as well as the history of Cleveland, Ohio. In the '70s, downtown was a wasteland and these punk rockers thrived in it. Dead Boys 1977 features images of the band posed in the midst of the urban decay that surrounded them and fueled their musical style. At a time when James Taylor was ascendant and punk rock had not yet fully caught on, these photos of Cheetah Chrome, Johnny Blitz, Stiv Bators, and Jimmy Zero take the viewer back to a seminal moment in punk history. Grab a copy and get your punk nostalgia on.
