Patrick Sisson - Writer, Journalist, Cultural Documentarian, Music Lover

We’ve canonized Easy Rider and lionized Hunter S. Thompson, but as far as poetry and pure journalism go, few books can match Danny Lyon’s unsullied, uncommercialized and unsentimental account of mid-century biker gangs in Chicago, The Bikeriders. Lyons didn’t merely make friends with the¬†subjects, he became a member of their crew, an experiment in embedded journalism before the term even existed. I was lucky enough to speak to him about his book and his experiences.
