'When Friedman locks onto something it's absolutely scarey. He's one relentless motherfucker.'
C.R. Steyck III
'Truth and beauty reside where ever one is lucky enough to find them. Glen E. Friedman works overtime attempting to ferret them out and present their essential characteristics in a manner that others can learn from. This man's mission is to distill it all down and to then serve it straight up and right at you.'
Now in it's second printing, Fuck You Heroes is photographer Glen E. Friedman's uncompromising look at the radicals of youth culture in the extreme worlds of skateboarding, punk and rap. From day one behind his camera, Friedman has had an unerring ability to be in the right place ahead of everybody else. He was a teenaged photographer for 'Thrasher' and 'Skateboarder' magazines, he created the seminal one-hit punk fanzine 'My Rules', worked with Black Flag and Suicidal Tendencies in their early days, wrote for Maximum Rock & Roll, did street promotion for Def Jam's west coast office and shot sleeve photos for everyone from Minor Threat to Public Enemy. This book presents the photographic distillation of Glen's ethic: it's about the perfect shots of the people who live by the touchstones of intensity and integrity.
