CRO-MAGS Frontman Talks About Autobiography; Part Two Of Video Interview Available

Earlier this year, Define The Meaning had the opportunity to sit down with John Joseph of the CRO-MAGS and BLOODCLOT! to talk about his book "The Evolution of a Cro-Magnon". Part two of this three-part video series has been posted online and in this segment, John Joseph discusses the hijacking of the Hare Krishna movement by false "gurus" and his involvement with the IRM movement, his vegetarian lifestyle, and staying in shape. Interview by Justin Fullam. Production by Forrest Love.

Watch parts one and two below.

A traumatic childhood in foster homes was just the beginning of John's evolution, according to PUNKHOuse. Before fronting one of the most important bands in the underground punk scene, the CRO-MAGS, John faced homelessness, addiction, betrayal and insanity. Still, even his success couldn't save him from a relapse that set him back to square one rock bottom. "Evolution of a Cro-Magnon" is a raw and unapologetic autobiography about his life. Consider yourself warned.
