During his formative years, writer/guitarist Josh Alan Friedman was enchanted by New York elevator men—career professionals who spent a lifetime going up and down all day. He dreamed of holding this job himself, but the profession became obsolete at the push of a button. Adrift, Josh wrote Tales of Times Square, Tell the Truth Until They Bleed and Black Cracker. His albums: Famous & Poor, The Worst!, Blacks ‘n’ Jews, Josh Alan Band. He lives in the Republic of Texas and can be found at BlackCrackerOnline.com.
