Another amazing London Real interview, this time with the Cro-Mags lead singer John Joseph. Before, during, and after his time in the Cro-Mags, Joseph served as a roadie for Bad Brains, and he sang background vocals on Antidote’s Thou shalt not kill EP. He returned to the Cro-Mags briefly in the early to mid-1990s, but ongoing disputes with fellow band members Harley Flanagan and Parris Mayhew made the project unsustainable. Joseph has also sung for the band Both Worlds and currently sings for Bloodclot. His autobiography, The evolution of a cro-magnon, published in 2007, details the major events in his life, including his extensive involvement with the hare krishnas, as well his experiences with the Cro-Mags. Interviews with Joseph were featured in the 1999 documentary NYHC as well as the 2006 documentary American hardcore. He has also done some voice acting, playing the hippo in the cartoon Three thug mice. Since 2010, Joseph started competing in ironman competitions. Joseph is the author of the book Meat Is for Pussies, released in the early 2010 on vegan nutrition, training, and the healthy lifestyle. Joseph is a vegan. He was a vegetarian prior to becoming vegan. He also lives a straight edge lifestyle but does not identify with its subculture.
