J. Hunter Bennett "The Prodigal Rogerson: The Tragic, Hilarious, And Possibly Apocryphal Story Of Circle Jerks Bassist Roger Rogerson In The Golden Age Of L.A. Punk, 1979-1996" - Book

In 1983, Circle Jerks bassist Roger Rogerson stole the band's van and dropped off the face of the earth. Thirteen years later, he came back, demanded that his bandmates reunite so they could become "bigger than The Beatles," and promptly dropped dead. In a compelling narrative woven out of interviews with who knew him, with never-before-published photos of the band, "The Prodigal Rogerson..." explains what happened to Rogerson, where he went, and who he was - all against the backdrop of the Los Angeles punk scene in its prime.
