Dirty Days: True New York City Bar And Rock Stories (Hardcover)
DIRTY DAYS is a nonfiction narrative. The Setting - the tough Irish bars of New York City in the 1970s, '80s, and '90s. A place where life can change in an unforeseen instant. As a Bleecker Street bouncer and musician during the 1980s, 1990s and early 2000s in Greenwich Village, author Kevin Patrick Corrigan relives true stories of old school New York City. Kevin Patrick Corrigan has been a fixture in the New York City Irish bar and music scene for three decades. He estimates he's been in over 200 street and bar fights. He smiles when he says he has a record of 147 wins and 72 losses. He has had a major record deal. He has toured the country telling stories and singing songs. He has also written a nationally distributed comedy series. DIRTY DAYS spans from a seven year old Kevin's interactions with Times Square hookers in the '70s to a full grown adult helping a distraught Gulf War Marine avoid a PTSD situation on Bleecker Street in 2003. DIRTY DAYS is a journey that follows author Kevin Patrick Corrigan from bloody Halloween street fights - to being taught sage wisdom from baseball legend Yogi Berra - to opening up for Alice Cooper, The Scorpions, and KISS - to being in a riot with 200 drunk sailors during Fleet week - to being asked to take a bullet for Snoop Dogg. Those are just a sample of some of the many true accounts in this book. DIRTY DAYS is a ride back in time to the underbelly of New York City's long-lost rough and tumble, grimey era.
