He is the author of How Soon Is Never?; Too Much, Too Late; and Nobody Likes You: Inside the Turbulent Life, Times, and Music of Green Day and coauthor with Brendan Mullen of We Got the Neutron Bomb: The Untold Story of L.A. Punk. Brendan Mullen founded the Masque, the Hollywood underground club/rehearsal space hailed as the birthplace of the Los Angeles and Orange County punk scenes.

"When Gillian McCain and I wrote Please Kill Me, a number of
people asked us, 'What about the L.A. punk scene?' We said 'That's
another book.' And now Marc Spitz and Brendan Mullen have finally
written it. It's about time."
