The plan was simple; drop out of high school and become a rock star. But when his wildly popular band unexpectedly folds, rather than give up, Joey Wrecked becomes even more determined to make it in music. What follows is an outrageous adventure of sliding up, and down, the rock and roll ladder. Along the way there are encounters with The Clash, Steven Tyler, more than a few jealous boyfriends, and much more. His story is one-of-a-kind, funny, and actually… true.
BLURBS for The Drummer of Miami Beach by Joey Maya
“Music fans will devour The Drummer of Miami Beach as a Who’s Who of modern rock history. But anyone can relate to Joey Maya’s memoirs as a universal tale of rise and fall and rebirth. Get into the groove!”
Steven Blush, Author/Filmmaker (American Hardcore, Lost Rockers, New York Rock)
“A band, and this story, is only as good as the drummer!”
-Coz Canler – guitar player – The Romantics, guest guitarist – Hollywood Vampires
“Joey was there from the beginning. I just never knew how he got there. Now I know!”
Roger Miret – Agnostic Front
