Editorial Reviews

Review

"Miret’s memorable, affecting stories capture an important time in the hardcore music scene. . . . Equal parts music memoir and gritty coming-of-age story, it’s an eminently readable and fast-paced look at life during hardcore’s heyday. . . . Not just for music fans, My Riot is a valuable snapshot of an important time." ―Foreword Reviews

“The most wild, sincere, honest book I’ve ever read. Roger holds nothing back and delivers jaw-dropping story after story that you would see in a movie. . . . You won't be able to put it down.” ―Suburban Rebels

"Fan or not, My Riot is a great look back at a singular time in musical history, written from a very singular perspective, and it was almost impossible to put down." ―Midnight to Six

"Reading Miret's memories of the scene's early violent years was enthralling. . . . Despite its unflinching style, the memoir also carries a lighter tone in parts, especially any stories revolving around Miret's musical partner in crime, Agnostic Front guitarist Vinnie Stigma." ―No Echo

“Miret’s captivating and harrowing, no-holds-barred account of a life lived in the trenches . . . You don’t have to be a major Agnostic Front fan to get maximum enjoyment out of this book. . . . A compelling read.” ―Classic Rock Revisited

“Roger, with the help of Jon Wiederhorn, writes with a great level of humility, simplicity, and honesty that makes for a very easy read. . . . One of the things that I really loved are the fun stories Roger shared throughout. . . . There are many gems like these in this book, some of which will make you laugh, cringe and possibly cry. Nonetheless, the beauty of it all is that Roger lived to tell the tale.” ―In Effect Hardcore

"You can’t claim Roger Miret, one of the New York’s hardcore scenes founding fathers, held anything back in his new memoir. . . . A compelling book.”―Innocent Words

"A gripping new memoir" ―Reason
