‘MY RAMONES” REVEALS THE BAND BEFORE THEY HIT IT BIG

The original manager of The Ramones, Danny Fields, has a new book, ”My Ramones” featuring hundreds of unseen photos of the beloved punk band from 1972 to 1974. Those were the very early years, before the band achieved fame and success. Fields’ book has photos of the Ramones luxuriating at the Sunset Marquis hotel on an early visit to LA – they felt like celebrities because there was a pool right outside their doors. Joey Ramone, (the “godfather of punk”) who had Marfan Syndrome, was self conscious about his 6’6” height and tried to minimize it, as can be seen in the photo above, taken in Washington DC.

    I love the ramones and Joey ramone was my absolute favorite!

    He led a very sad life, it’s horrible to think of how his band mate stole his girlfriend and even though he was DEEPLY hurt by this, he remained in the band, because he had nothing else. Very tragic.

    Screw The Ramones. Read Trouble Boys about the Replacements. Much better read about a much better band.

  • Blind Item: America’s Sweetheart Battling A Drug Addiction?
    |

    BLIND_ITEM_NEW_#CUT

    One of America’s Sweethearts is battling a serious drug addiction- not hers, but her best friend’s. Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price. After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
