About the Book:
“The recollections in The First Ten Years are so personal and intimate that you feel like you’re being let into one of the band’s old basement hangs at 2A. . . . The book’s biggest treats aren’t the sweaty, sultry shots of shows at Don Hill’s, Irving Plaza, Bowery Ballroom, and Hammerstein Ballroom; they’re the snaps of the guys during their high school years in the mid-’90s, looking like typical grunge fanboys.” ?Bedford and Bowery<.i>
“Cody’s been with us since the very beginning?always a motivator, forever a friend. Along the way he captured some very special moments. I didn’t even know he’d brought along his camera.” ?Nick Valensi
