Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Bill Griffiths was a poet and Anglo-Saxon scholar associated with the British Poetry Revival. Griffiths was born in Kingsbury, Middlesex. As a teenager, he became a Hells Angel; his experiences with bikers provided material for many early poems. From 1971, these poems were published in Poetry Review, under the editorship of Eric Mottram, and by Bob Cobbing's Writers Forum. He also collaborated on a number of performance poetry pieces with Cobbing and others.
