Vinnie Stigma "The Most Interesting Man In The World" - Book


The Godfather of New York City hardcore and founding member of Agnostic Front invites you into his lower east side pad to regale you with tales from his extraordinary life among mobsters, punk rockers, and a bevy of iconic artists and personalities—none of whom is as fascinating as the inimitable Vinnie Stigma!  Vinnie’s story stretches from his upbringing in Little Italy in the ’50s and ’60s amongst the tight-knit Italian families to becoming one of the Big Apple’s earliest punk rockers in the ’70s, playing and visiting such eclectic downtown haunts as Max’s Kansas City, The Electric Circus, and CBGB. Still, Vinnie Stigma is not your run-of-the-mill rocker. He has dabbled in cooking, professional wrestling, acting, martial arts, yoga, and other creative disciplines. He is a father and a cancer survivor who helped pioneer skinhead and tattoo culture in America, and has mentored hundreds of fledgling musicians and artists. His vivid stories are illuminating, surprising, inspiring, and often hilarious.  Featuring vintage photos throughout, a handful of signature Italian recipes, even a four-page comic, a heartwarming children’s story, and a crossword puzzle, The Most Interesting Man in the World is a journey through life unlike any other.
