book was long in the coming. Doc and Spike have talked about it a few
times over the past few years. It is only now that you can crawl into
the past memories of the Street Survivors as they named themselves such
a long time ago.
The two have started
from their first memories of each other and lead you into times and
places that could never be imagined by most normal people. Their lives
and loves are presented to you in hopes that you will feel the emotions
and intensity from their lives as they stumbled and fought throughout
their lives as they knew it.
The world has changed
so much over the past thirteen years. Most of the people from those
memories have relocated and some have died. New places were erected
in the old towns and cities and most of the old places have been destroyed
or molested. The pictures that accompany these scribblings were taken
thirteen years after these memories were made. Very few pictures were
taken at the time.
Spike and Doc knew
that this book was destined to be written in September of 1991. The
two started from Detroit Metropolitan Airport and in less than three
hours had all the addresses and information that they had set out to
find over a period of ten days. After location of Carol M. and consultation
with her the location of Betsy was obtained. Also found were the addresses
of all the other people that were involved in the memories of that past
The rest of the
ten days were used for the development of a plan for the production
of the four to produce the book that you are reading. Visits to old
places and fields where nothing is standing. Walks down the railroad
tracks that were a major transportation way for the "Street Survivors"
thirteen years ago. Trips to the K-mart stores and the malls that they
used to invade. As this time passed, too soon, it was time to return
to their plain lives without the ones they love.
So, here it is
for all the love and hate, for all the pain and torment, for all the
fun and excitement, for all the readers, but most of all for
the loves that we will never forget and lives
that should never have ended.
is the site and book that your dreams and fears are made of. Read and
enjoy the memories that are ours with the same enthusiasm and intensity
that we put into their making. Spike
