Sheriff McCoy : Andy McCoy Outlaw Legend of Hanoi Rocks
by Polly Watson and Ike Vil




Overview -
The decadent autobiography of HANOI ROCKS co-founder Andy McCoy, Sheriff McCoy: Legend of Hanoi Rocks, is now available in English for the first time in a deluxe hardcover edition through Bazillion Points Books.
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, Motley 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. "
