Back when Spin was new and fresh and a little punk rock, Legs McNeil wrote rock journalism for it which was so good it convinced me I should totally do rock journalism when I grew up. (Hmm, maybe I should hold this against him.) At any rate, Legs McNeil is going to be doing readings in Detroit, Chicago, and Minneapolis. He will be reading from his seminal punk history Please Kill Me and something teased as only “New Book”. I suppose I should email and ask him what the new book will be. Given his impressive track record, I am guessing it will be something which involves bringing an uncommon intellect and been-there insights, combined with deep research . . . to an aspect of pop culture some people might take less seriously, but which really matters.
