Touted as “the last great rock ‘n’ roll memoir,” Andy McCoy’s autobiography covers the legendary guitarist’s life and exploits from childhood through the early 2000s rekindling of Hanoi Rocks. McCoy helped introduce punk to Finland with his teenaged band Briard before befriending glamorous Michael Monroe and forming Hanoi Rocks. Based for a time in a Stockholm subway station, the band embarked on wild life-changing and death-defying thrill ride around the world, touring Europe, London, and America, and also Israel, Brazil, Thailand, and Japan.

After Hanoi Rocks dissolved following the death of drummer Nicholas “Razzle” Dingley in Hollywood in December 1984, McCoy carried on with Suicide Twins, Cherry Bombz, a successful solo career, and a stint as a sideman to Iggy Pop. Meanwhile, Hanoi Rocks’ over-the-top image and streetwise bending of punk, glam, and rock ‘n’ roll inspired a generation of platinum-selling bands.

McCoy’s 204-page hilarious and harrowing autobiography includes dozens of rare candid photos, a deluxe embossed cover, a lengthy select discography spanning three decades of rarities, and a new 2009 preface written by McCoy after the final breakup of Hanoi Rocks. The book features guest appearances by Guns N’ Roses, Mötley Crue, the UK Subs, Ofra Haza, Kid Creole, Bob Marley, Lita Ford, David Coverdale of Whitesnake, Johnny Thunders of the New York Dolls, Stiv Bators, various Brazilian street urchins, the LAPD, British customs officials, and the Israeli Army Security Forces.

According to the author: “This book is entertainment for entertainment’s sake, for lovers of rock ‘n’ roll history and people who have a taste for the macabre.”

Sheriff McCoy is a frank, but upbeat experience, and should be required reading for all those who believe in the transformative thunder of rock ‘n’ roll.”—Amp

    Andy got a statue this summer. NIce gesture and definitely well earned, but hell: the statue shouldve a horse innit. The captain riding on a horse. And another thing: it should be located next to Mannerheim statue. Or actually, I think it would be time for mannerheim to step aside and replace his statue with the Captain McCoy’s riding statue figure!
