EARLY MANN

Dave Mann is probably the most iconic illustrator of the American motorcycle culture, and was seminal in the success of Easyriders magazine, which featured his vivid, almost mythical takes on the US biker lifestyle as centrefolds in every issue.

But before he made it big in Easyriders, David sold his early work to Ed ‘Big Daddy’ Roth, who signed his own name to them and published them in a magazine called Chopper. Man was 26 at the time and kinda let it slide.

As you…um, do. After all, it was the Sixties, man.

About the Author

is a writer who has contributed to many magazines and websites over the years, edited a couple of those things as well, and written a few books. But his most important contribution is pissing people off. He feels this is his calling in life and something he takes seriously. He also enjoys whiskey, whisky and the way girls dance on tables. And riding motorcycles. He's pretty keen on that, too.
