From the Inside Flap
After the success of Or Glory 21st Century Rockers, acclaimed photographer Horst A. Friedrichs captures the spirit of The Rockers Jacket in modern times. First coming into its own as a symbol of youth rebellion in the 50s, the Leather jacket continues to fascinate as much for its beauty as its mythology. The leather jacket belongs to that select group of garments that can be described as iconic. No other western garment has been individualized that much, expressing the soul of who it belongs. The book features new exclusive pictures from the Lewis leathers vintage jacket collection. Iconic leather jackets never seen before, but also showing the contemporary replicas by Lewis Leathers.See all Product Description

I was very pleased to feature in the book, but quite happy to resume my normal life, talking bikes and rock 'n' roll to whoever turns up at The Ace, or other places where friends meet. I'm nobody special, but I often find that my friends are. That's Rock 'n' Roll, I suppose!
The photos are subject matter are excellent, it is a must for anybody interested in the rockers scene.
