About the Author

Scott Stephens skated under the name “James Scott” with Roller Games from 1978 to 1981. Today Scott stays busy managing his musical group, Liquid Blue.

“Roller Derby was anything but conventional.
It was dark, violent and underground.
It was non-conformist; hip and authentic.
It welcomed all races, genders and sexual orientations.
It was a “people’s sport” with low salaries and admission fees; revered by the inner city working classes.
It was Rock & Roll, Funk, Goth and Punk combined and often edgier than all of them.
It was a traveling circus; a dysfunctional but happy band of gypsies including some of the most colorful characters the sports world has ever seen.
This is why I love it!”
