TSOL Singer Jack Grisham Has New Book Out; Exploring Run for Senate in 2012

This is Jack. In my car.

Jack Grisham, lead singer for the popular 80’s punk/goth band TSOL, has a new book out.

“An American Demon: A Memoir” is a sometimes touching, mostly cringe-worthy book  detailing the evolution of Grisham’s life. Between dysfunctional family issues, the 80’s punk scene, religion, surfing, addiction, and cross-dressing, Jack’s neurotic story-telling combined with his unabashed hilarity makes this a “must-read” even for non-punk fans. Buy the book at Amazon.com.

In other Jack news, our hero is exploring the possibility of running for the senate in 2012 under the social-democrat platform. In 2003, he ran for governor of California but lost to Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Old punks remember that during the the early years of TSOL, Grisham was an outspoken anarchist, and his lyrics were often highly critical of the government. Songs such as “Abolish Government/Silent Majority,” “Peace Thru Power,” and “Property Is Theft” were standard in TSOL’s song sets. Grisham later changed his anti-government stance, stating, “What I realized about anarchy is that we are not responsible enough to be anarchist. There’s no way possible. We’re not responsible enough to be that. That’s a heavy concept.” For those paying attention, yes this came straight from his Wikipedia article, but I wrote most of his Wiki it so it’s cool.

LA/OC folks… go check out Jack’s book release party in Long Beach on May 1st. Details here.

Here is a young Jack with TSOL making a fashion statement. Now decades later, he still dresses with flair and still has that crazy head of hair!
