Skinheads, Rastas and Hippies reflects Johns involvement in the alternative culture of the 1970s through to the 1990s. He saw a common denominator between the different ethnic and subculture groups i.e. Rastas mixing with hippies skinheads etc. It was these experiences coupled with his own diagnosis of schizophrenia that lead John to put pen to paper. A truly entertaining read, the story reflects Johns upbringing and youth in the mixed and sometimes volatile Brixton in South London.
