About the Author
John Joseph, is the son of an alcoholic prizefighter and an extremely abused mother. John and his brothers were removed from their family at a young age. They spent nearly seven years in one of New York State s worst foster homes surviving mental and physical abuse. The home was eventually shut down and he ended up at various violent boys homes and institutions. Early January 1977, when New York City was bankrupt, corrupt and the murder capital of the America, John escaped and took to the street. He was 14 years old, homeless, living through the Son of Sam killings, the infamous Blackout of 1977, and rampant out-of-control New York City violence. He survived those tumultuous days and nights alone, sleeping in burnt-out buildings, acting as a heroin drug-mule, a street dealer, and a hustler. In late 1978 his life crashed down as he was incarcerated for close to two years in New York State s worst juvenile facility, Spofford Correctional then to an upstate lock up. But what s most compelling about John s story is how he overcame the obstacles and adversity: his loss of family and his serious addictions to crack cocaine, drugs and alcohol. John wrote his critically acclaimed memoir, The Evolution of a Cro-Magnon , published in 2007 as a way to exercise his demons. Then in 2014 Harper Collins released his book Meat is For Pussies , an in-your-face look at guys health which has become an underground success and has helped thousands of men change their bad eating habits and lifestyles. He s replaced the Iron Bars of the prison system with the Ironman Triathlon as a way to constantly challenge himself physically, mentally and spiritually. John still tours as the lead singer with the world-famous Cro-Mags, the group which everyone from Metallica to Black Flag to Green Day credit as one of the most influential punk rock bands of all time. As of late John speaks in gang-affiliated high schools, prisons and lock-ups to incarcerated men and women as a way to help them move in a positive direction. He's also the co-creator of the documentary "30 to Life" which is currently being filmed in Los Angeles and helps parolees avoid returning to prison by educating them in the same life changing principles which have kept him out of prison.
