Those who have never seen a stylized black flag waving on a shirt should be publicly crucified.
The Black Flag (Hermosa Beach, California) were the founders of the hardcore/punk movement, active since the late ’70s.
This picture portrays the band’s new lead singer, who fronted the band after Keith Morris and Chavo Pederast. I’m talking about Henry Rollins.
I’m very fascinated by the photographer (by Glen E. Friedman) who has been able to capture, since the 70s, the beginning of the Californian skate scene and of the seminal punk bands, whose names still today send shivers down my spine.
The walls of my room were plastered with posters, flyers and everything else that came from the camera of this photographer. I would like to be adopted by him. Seriously!
