Hello,
I'll take the time to give my regards to the Ramones for showing other musicians, like me, that playing music is mainly to have fun and not about the good looks and the private airplanes.
I've been a punk fan since I was 9 yrs old. I listened to Blondie,uk subs,The Ramones,...Now that I'm in my mid-30's, I still cannot tolerate music on the radio and this I o it all to bands like The Ramones who can survive a bad hair day.
Their legacy is solid.
Do the punk rock.Peace.

hey there. great site! I was hoping a fellow fan could help me in my image search. I'm looking for a picture of the "after" mouse from RnR HS. The mouse standing on hind legs wearing a leather. Ideally it'd be great to have the picture that was used to make Miss Togar's poster, but if someone knows of a still from that scene, I suppose I could crop the mouse. Thanks! keep on rockin'

Mars Rocks! Eclectic Music Moves Rover Mission

Thu Feb 26,10:18 AM ET
By Robert Roy Britt
Senior Science Writer, SPACE.com

You won't find the following playlist on any radio station. Only a Martian would mix ABBA with R. Kelly, Beyonce with Gene Autry, and the Rolling Stones with Rodgers and Hammerstein.

Or someone pretending to be a Martian.

The eclectic playlist is Mars rover Spirit mission manager Mark Adler's way of waking exhausted engineers and scientists who are working and sleeping on Mars time and dealing with a sometimes temperamental rover millions of miles away.

And with entries like the Ramones' "I Wanna Be Sedated," it shows that NASA (news - web sites) people are anything but stuffy.

***Ramones for Reagan***

Not all rock music icons are kneejerk liberals.



In an article in the latest issue of Reason magazine, Northwestern University senior David Weigel writes that Johnny Ramone, guitarist for seminal punk-rock band the Ramones, "vehemently objected" to the original title of the band's anti-Reagan song, "Bonzo Goes to Bitburg."

The song was retitled "My Brain Is Hanging Upside Down," on the group's 1986 album, "Animal Boy."

Johnny Ramone later explained: "I thought Ronald Reagan was the best president of our lifetime."

Marky Ramone to Gauge Tour Interest Jan 08, 2004

Marky Ramone may dredge The Ramones' past to play a full-fledged tour of his past band's previous material.

The drummer has two shows scheduled this month -- Jan. 15 in Detroit and Jan. 17 in Cleveland -- playing with a group of non-Ramones affiliated musicians. He told Billboard that he'll use the shows as a dry run to see if fans will actually shell out to see a drummer relive his glory days. Gutiarist Johnny Ramone, according to the magazine, has no interest in the project.

Marky Ramone is no stranger to knock-off band nostalgia: Since The Ramones cashed it in in 1996, he's played with The Misfits as well as pandering his Ramones name with Marky Ramone and the Intruders.

Saying the Sex Pistols invented punk is like Al Gore saying he invented the internet, its laughable. I would give the Clash more credit than the Sex Pistols any day of he week.

Not 53rd & 3rd

Joey Ramone gets his Place (in the 9-to-5 world, and beyond)

By 1 p.m., two generations of punk loyalists had swarmed the corner of East 2nd Street and the Bowery for the city's formal dedication of Joey Ramone Place, immortalizing the relationship between the King of Punk and the city that spawned him.

Following Joey's untimely death in 2001, a teenage fan from Staten Island spearheaded the street sign movement. On Sunday, November 30, her dream came true—now punks have something to lean against.

Meantime, inside CBGB, high mass was in progress. Joey's brother—guitarist Mickey Leigh—and Punk magazine founders Legs McNeil and John Holmstrom officiated, as a parade of family, friends, scene entrepreneurs, and luminaries offered heartfelt testimonials to the huddled masses.

Marky Ramone said, "Joey was a true New Yorker, and only a New Yorker could have spawned the Ramones." Talking Heads' Chris Franz observed, "Joey Ramone was an outsider artist.

He was a person who truly lived at the edge while challenging our traditional cultural values." The Dictators' Dick Manitoba quipped, "What's the big deal about a street sign? It should be fucking Joey Ramone Boulevard!"

Borrowing from Gandhi, Ramones artistic director Arturo Vega summed up the Ramones' last 30 years: "At the beginning, they ignore you. Then they laugh at you. Then they fight you. Then you win." Indeed, Joey's punk politics permeated this bittersweet family affair. The cultural freedom-fighter from Forest Hills demanded the airwaves and open space for kids to create and consume music. The street sign symbolizes CBGB's role in the end-of-the-century revitalization of the Bowery. Now, as condos and luxury buildings impose themselves upon the landscape, and landlord greed and NYU encroachment threaten to shut CBGB, Lenny Kaye applauded the sign as a historical referent in an ominous future.

Sporting a CBGB T-shirt, with a proclamation signed and sealed by Manhattan Borough President C. Virginia Fields, Council- man Alan Gerson formally declared November 30 "Joey Ramone Day." At around 2:30 p.m., the sign, covered with a black Ramones T-shirt, was unveiled amid hearty chants of "hey ho let's go." A giant Joey Ramone puppet head on a stick carried a sign, a prayer; "1-2-3-4ever in our heart, soul, gut." Meantime, everyone began placing their bets: "How long do you think it will be before some punk steals that sign?"

That was quick!!!!!!! The sign has now been removed from the WRONG SPOT in the last hour (see photo) and the DOT is on the way back to put it in the right spot, on the corner of Bowery and 2nd Street! @5:09 pm

Lets' just say "...it did not come down on it's own". There may have been some divine intervention, but we will see it on the CORRECT LOCATION ON SUNDAY!!!!

 

YEEEEEE-HA!

*** EXTRA EXTRA *** ****** NEWS FLASH ******

Joey Ramone Place or "Way"?

WOW!!! The story gets better!!!! This afternoon, Friday the 28th, the sign was placed at the WRONG SPOT in advance of the official dedication Sunday. In front of CBGB's RIGHT NOW, you will see it. It's been covered, but it's there! (SEE EXCLUSIVE PRE-DEDICATION PHOTOS BY RAMONESMANIA TONIGHT) Vinny, my brudda' and co-pinhead here, was there today throughout.

See FULL PHOTO ABOVE


If they could only get this right...boy it'll be awesome.


The second thing is that after notifying some folks that it would officially be "Joey Ramone Way", the DOT has now delivered a "Joey Ramone Place" sign, which IS MUCH COOLER. We hope it stays!

The location is DEAD WRONG though today. As of this writing, it is at the front of CBGB's door, in the center of the block which is Bleeker Street, not on the corner of 2nd, where it was officially selected to be?

Hilly Kristal, the longtime owner of CB's would like that very same spot for "CBGB's Way" one day we hear, logically in front of his establishment.

Soooooo...thats it for today in the world of RAMONESMANIA!!!

Joey Ramone Gets Street Cred

New York City names corner for punk rock legend

Joey's place

The corner of Second Street and the Bowery in New York City will officially be named "Joey Ramone Place" (ramonesmania editors note: as of this writing the official name is "Joey Ramone Way") during a November 30th ceremony.

Ramone's corner is on the north side of the block that houses CBGB, the legendary club where the Ramones helped usher in punk rock.

"As far as the city recognizing Joey, it's about time," CB's owner Hilly Kristal says. "The Ramones meant a lot to this city and to music. They were the original punk rock band. Their longevity supercedes anybody who sold more records, and the consistency and meaning of their name is greater than anybody in the punk rock field."

The location is almost as much a tip to Kristal's club as it is to Ramone, who found his faux-sib bandmates closer to his home in the Forest Hills neighborhood of Queens, New York. CBGB celebrates its thirtieth anniversary next month, and Kristal figures it was within the venue's first six months that the Ramones made their first appearance. In an online history of CB's, Kristal recalled thinking at first that the Ramones were "the most untogether group I'd ever heard . . . a mess." But he became a champion for the nascent punk scene despite the fact that his club's name stood for Country Bluegrass Blues. "The key is that Joey and [bassist] Dee Dee wrote great little songs," he says. "They were not pretentious, just real and simple back to rock & roll-type songs. It's why you still hear them today."

Ramone's fans had been trying to get the corner named after him almost immediately after his death, from cancer, in April 2001. While the group never enjoyed much commercial success during its time, the past few years have seen a greater sense of appreciation for the Ramones, including a tribute album and their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2002. Dee Dee Ramone died later that year, leaving guitarist Johnny Ramone and drummer Tommy Ramone as the sole surviving members of the band's original lineup.

The ceremony for the installation of the Joey Ramone Place (Correction: "Joey Ramone Way") sign is scheduled for 1 p.m. on the 30th.

You know, that review bothered me too. It's like this website is part of the Johnie Ramone spin Machine, which won't even allow that Ritchie Ramone was in the band. Get a life. He was there for like FIVE FUCKING YEARS and wrote SMASH YOU, SOMEBODY PUT SOMETHING IN MY DRINK and HUMANKIND. So I also wonder, does Johnie Ramone pay you to disrespect Ritchie Ramone? I heard about what he said. HE said, AFTEER DEE DEE QUIT THEY SHOULD HAVE GONE HOME. Maybe you agree. MAYBE NOT. But it was a great thing for one loyal friend to say about another.
GET A LIFE SNIPER. IF YOU CAN'T GET PASS YOUR OWN PETTY ISSUES, FIND SOMEONE REAL TO REPORT THE TRUTH.

hey jackass,
finallly got to see the ramones documentary and evaluate your idiotic, bisased review. are you on johnny ramone's payrole or something. because i didn't hear richie ramone saying that they "overstayed their welcome" which is what your erroneously reported. he said, "after dee dee quit, they should have gone home."
this is an opinion shared by a lot of people, including dee dee. and since they were friends, and remained friends till dee dee's death, why would richie ramone say anything else. notice that dee dee didn't even write one word about riche ramone in his slam book. that's how much he loved the guy. so what would richie ramone say. "i worked with the greatest poet on earth but was happy to see that they could subsititue him with a frat boy like cj ramone."
actually, judging from the performance footage, richie ramone could have said they should have packed it in after he quit. he would have been accurate. call the guy anything you want, he rocked. everybody else looks pathetic by comparison.

Swan Song
What might School of Rock tell us about the state of rock 'n' roll?
By Alex Abramovich

School of Rock: Rock, emasculated

How much can rock 'n' roll movies tell us about the state of rock itself? Take the 1979 Ramones' classic, Rock 'n' Roll High School, and compare it to the current Jack Black juggernaut, School of Rock. A quarter-century ago the Ramones told us the Man "tried to stop their music, but the kids got wrecked and rocked the school!" Today, Black goes out of his way to explain that rock isn't about "scoring chicks" or "getting wasted," and the theme song culminates in a cry of "get me to school on time!" Well, as Joey Ramone quipped 25 years ago, "things sure have changed since we got kicked out of high school."

Traditionally, confluences of rock and film stock tended to fall into one of two categories: In twentysomething films like High Fidelity, the heroes held rock to be so real, and so very vital, that life itself seemed pale in comparison. Such films told us, time and again, that aesthetic judgments, rather than actions, defined our characters. In teen epics like Footloose, rock 'n' roll was elevated to the status of an emerging and embattled value system. The kids in these films felt about music the way that early Christians felt about Christ. Town elders stood in for Roman centurions, and the music served double-duty as cri de coeur and secret language. Bob Dylan summed both forms up nearly 40 years ago: "The word is not international phenomenon," he said. "The word is parental nightmare."

But School of Rock was written with a new breed of adults in mind—and their driving fear isn't that the youth of tomorrow will fall prey to what Frank Sinatra once described as "the martial marching music of every side-burned delinquent." It's that the kids might never get their rocks off in the first place. When Black first meets his school kids, who are young enough to be Dylan's grandkids, Led Zeppelin takes a backseat to Latin, and rock 'n' roll is as sexy and redemptive, in their eyes, as a square dance at a retirement home. Which might explain why Stephen Holden's New York Times review mentioned in passing that hip-hop has usurped rock's place in the public imagination; if he's right, it makes sense that the substitute teacher played by Jack Black should have to introduce his charges to the pleasures of rocking out rather than the other way around. It also makes sense that, like the subtext in your favorite Saturday morning cartoon, School of Rock's music serves mainly to keep the grown-ups engaged.

In this, as in other things, the film succeeds brilliantly. Director Richard Linklater dates his artistic awakening to a 1984 Dead Kennedys show. His first, DIY film, Slacker, did as much as any other to define the contemporary indie aesthetic. And, for all its references to Zeppelin, Sabbath, and AC/DC, his latest has impeccable indie credentials: The cast was coached by Jim O'Rourke, the avant-rocker who produced Wilco's Yankee Hotel Foxtrot and now plays with Sonic Youth. The title track was co-written with New York garage-rockers the Mooney Suzuki. Craig Wedren, who used to sing with the Washington, D.C., art-punk band Shudder To Think, ghostwrote the faux-Creed anthem you hear in the film's Battle of the Bands sequence. And if Jack Black's character leans heavily toward metal and riff-rock, the film itself makes less-obvious choices—songs by bands like the Velvet Underground and Jonathan Richman's Modern Lovers keep seeping through cracks in the dialogue.

Given such a pedigree, it's odd that School of Rock should invert High Fidelity's highbrow aesthetic entirely and—aside from a quick, cursory dis of Christina Aguilera, Puff Daddy, and MTV—strive to avoid value judgments altogether. Still that's what Linklater's team seems to be doing through much of the film. Consider the sequences in which Black's kids rock out to Led Zeppelin's "Immigrant Song" and the Ramones' "My Brain Is Hanging Upside Down (Bonzo Goes to Bitburg)." Setting Zeppelin's Wagnerian pretensions against a punk song about Ronald Reagan's trip to a certain German cemetery might, in fact, be the point, but the Ramones themselves would have objected—for them, Jimmy Page's taste wasn't much of an improvement over Reagan's. ("We decided to start our own group because we were bored with everything we heard," Joey Ramone explained once. "Everything was tenth-generation Led Zeppelin … overproduced, or just junk. We missed music like it used to be.") Here, and elsewhere, School of Rock's implication isn't so much that such musical turf battles have sorted themselves out with time—it's that they've simply ceased to matter.

This isn't to say that I was unhappy to hear songs by the Ramones and the Modern Lovers in a movie that held the No. 1 box-office spot, or that I think bands like Led Zeppelin and AC/DC are worthless in comparison, but that the tensions between such bands help keep rock off life support in the first place. The music's preservation depends, in part, on their immanence. Like Slate's David Edelstein, I was charmed by School of Rock, but I left the theater thinking not of the rock films I grew up with but of more recent efforts to place broad swaths of American music in a museum: Ken Burns' Jazz or Martin Scorsese Presents the Blues also put up brave facades. And they, too, left me feeling that the sight of our elders being afraid for our music, rather than of it, was a sure sign of something amiss.

If School of Rock gives us any indication of what rock might look like in another 50 years—and of what it's beginning to look like today—it's this: Wholly absorbed into the nation's bloodstream, rock continues to be played and appreciated by certain segments of the population, works its way into the American curriculum, and loses its sense of engagement with the culture at large. This makes Linklater's film something like the cinematic equivalent of an Irish wake or a New Orleans funeral—a good enough time is had by all that the corpse itself is soon forgotten.

Alex Abramovich is writing a history of rock 'n' roll.

He lives in Astoria, Queens.

"On The Road with the Ramones" - As the band's tour manger from their CBGB debut on 16 August 1974 to their final show in Los Angeles on 6 August 1996, Monte A. Melnick saw it all: the arrests, the ODs, the fights, the breakups, the make-ups, the girlfriends, the hotels and the binges. Monte was indeed the fifth Ramone (or 9th?).

On The Road With The Ramones is his story in his own words. The book is out soon!

Boilermaker Bill almost dreads the passing of an American music great, because it prompts a pointless and tuneless adjournment speech in Losers Lounge. Previously, Amanda Fazio made her most significant contribution to the Lounge with her maudlin noting of the passing of Joey Ramone:

"I could say a lot more about the Ramones, because I think it is a most important band and probably one of the most influential of the past 25 years. I was so distressed at the passing of Joey Ramone that I named my dog Joey Ramone in his honour, as I purchased the puppy only a few days after Joey had passed away. I commend members who have not heard Ramones' songs to listen and learn."

By May, only weeks after its release, the album was certified gold, with more than 500,000 copies sold.

"Johnny Ramone (of the Ramones) got really angry with me when I told him it went gold. He said they had worked for 20 years, and I don't know if they ever got a gold record," she said with a chuckle.

officialramones,com was a stupid website. filled with vendettas and revisionist history. between the crackpot posters who dissed everybody, the idiotic "fans" who asked things like "is dee dee really dead" and "are you guys brothers," the creaps who abused people who had real opinions, a woman named sarah who talked about her sex life and acted like a mentor to 16 year olds (who is she, really>) it was a total waste. the real fans abandoned that site years ago. so, who's sad to see it disappear????. when it served one purpose, which was to advance the rhetoric of ONE RAMONE. maybe people are waiting for mr. arturo vega's new mess--ramonesworld-- to debut, but i wouldn't hold my breath. mr. vega, whatever happened to cause you to loose control over officialramones.com, you have only yourself to blame. and maybe you are so old that you can't even learn a lesson from how this went. you'll probably do another site with as many lies and mistakes as the last one.
question: how many people in the ramones organization still accept you? bet it's a lot less than you admit

If your a member of the officialramones.com fanclub then u get the email updates...if your not, here's the lastest describing what I mentioned in the email below.

----
EXTRA! EXTRA! READ ALL ABOUT IT!!
Yeah! The black out was actually a lot of fun, New Yorkers just came out
into the streets and had black out parties, somebody had to drink the beer before it got warm. Just one statistic...the average number of arrests for one day in New York City is 980, in the 24 hours after the black out started, there were 850.
>
One side effect was that we couldn't tell if the first 100 signed copies
of the new CD "Live From NYC had been grabbed or not, and couldn't stop the sales any way, so when we finally got the power back (yeah right...)we found out there were orders for a lot more than 100 so Johnny gracefully accepted to sign some more. That's why there are still some available, maybe for a couple of days more, so if you haven't get one.
>
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEEDEE
DeeDee's birthday, September 18 is coming up and this time we are going to celebrate in Los Angeles, why? Because DeeDee liked LA enough to happily live there the last few years of his meteoric life. CJ Ramone is coming to town with his band Bad Chopper and that's not all Barbara, DeeDee's wife who played bass and sang on tour with him will be there and will perform with CJ and with
some other very special guests. Wait there is more the coolest all girl LA band "Go Betty Go" will be part of the bill as well, so spread the word and be there at "THE GARAGE" right on Santa Monica Boulevard on Hollywood. I'll give
you more details (there will be more bands) later on. Of course I'll be there.
>
GOING TO TORONTO
The documentary "End of the century" is going to the Toronto Film Festival, this is probably the second most important film festival in the continent, these are the dates and times, the first two are open to the public, if you want to go, get your tickets now.
>

1st Screening - Wednesday, Sept 10 - 11:59pm (Midnight) - Varsity 8 Cinema
>
2nd Screening - Friday, Sept 12 - 6:00pm - ROM Cinema
>
Press & Industry Screening - Tuesday, Sept 9 - 5:00pm - Varsity 7 Cinema
>
WHAT ANOTHER BOOK???
No, not just another book, the ultimate Ramones encyclopedia, this is the scoop. Johnny and yours truly have decided to "put together" the coolest most complete Ramones book possible, the ultimate record of the Ramones caree in other words the really fun stuff, the music and the tours. Our goal is to put it out next year as part of the celebrations of the Ramones 30th anniversary, so we have to act fast and you pinheads and cretins can help, this is how:
>
We want to include as many original, unpublished, never seen photos as possible, preferably live shots but anything cool will do to, so if you have any and want them to be in this book this is what you can do:
>
Send me (ramones1234@aol.com)a digital image 4" X 6" and no less than 300 dpi in size. Don't forget to include ALL relevant information like date, place and the photographer's name with a letter giving me permission to use the photo.
>
Of course we want to include images of all kinds of other items,
practically anything that relates to the band's career like: concert tickets (complete
or even just a stub) newspaper and magazine articles, reviews or
advertisements for anything Ramone, flyers, posters, programs memorabilia, etc.

Let me know if you have anything you think may be interesting and we'll take it from there. Having your "stuff" in this book will make it even more precious and
valuable. The plan is to collect material from now till November, but the sooner the better.
>
We also need volunteers to do research and to help transcribing material from magazines newspapers, etc.,anybody that lives in New York City and wants to contribute will be of great help, but of course it can be done from anywhere else in the world.
>
Publishers normally take about a whole year after the get all the
material to get a book out, that's the main reason we have to rush.
>
Of course the 2263 live shows the Ramones performed live will be featured in a special way, including anecdotes from you the fans that made them possible, Fan Club members will get priority, so send me your recollections of your favorite Ramones show and if you have a cool photo of it even better.
Please send this e-mails with the title "My fave Ramones show"
>

Pojat was originally formed in 1989 to play only The Boys songs in finnish (The Boys = Pojat in finnish . During the years Pojat have recorded mainly their own songs, but also covers e.g. The Boys songs TCP, Brickfield Nights and First Time and The Ramones songs like Pet Sematary and She Belongs To Me all in finnish! When releasing album "Irti", the special guest in release gig was The Boys frontman Mr Casino Steel! Nowdays they are doing mostly their own stuff (some extras even in English), but they are still influenced by and respecting the sound and style of the bands like The Boys, The Ramones and The Clash
In 2003 they have already released cd-single, cd-ep and cd. During this year they have also participated in German Wanker Fanzine Dee Dee Ramone special issues cd-compilation and in Speedfinns-split-vinyl-ep including e.g. Marky Ramone & The Speedkings.

Hey Ho Ramones fans. Keep your eyes peeled for the new book On The Road With The Ramones, a behind the scenes look at 22 years of touring through the eyes of their longtime, one and only tour manager Monte A. Melnick. Written by Monte and Frank Meyer (POPsmear magazine, KNAC.com, AVN magazine, The Streetwalkin' Cheetahs), the book will feature never before seen live shots, intimate snapshots, rare memorabilia, posters, flyers, tickets, passes, and anecdotes and accounts by fans, friends and family. You'll get exclusive interviews with all the band members, as well as family, crew, friends, ex wives and girlfriends, and a cadre of top name rock stars. On The Road With The Ramones will be released in America and Europe this November through Sanctuary Books. You can pre-order it through www.barnesandnobble.com

2,262 shows in 22 years….

Leather jackets, torn jeans, dirty t-shirts, guitars down to their knees, 3-chords and a wall of sound. Punk pioneers and Rock n' Roll Hall of Famers the Ramones were an undeniable force and at the peak of their powers arguably the greatest band on the planet.
The Ramones created a unique sound, augmented it with a cartoonish hooligan look, wrote brilliant yet hilariously simple songs, and spawned a million imitators.
Yet for all their influence and infamy the band never had a breakthrough hit, were hardly embraced by radio or MTV, and were accepted by mainstream audiences until years after their demise. Lack of financial reward for their hard work and important contribution to modern music forced them to pound the pavement incessantly, touring the world for 22 years straight. While their road dog mentality and fierce live shows garnered them a legion of freakishly faithful fans and spread their gospel to the farthest corners of the earth, the band paid a heavy price emotionally and physically.
Monte Melnick saw it all...
As the band's tour manger for their entire career -- from their CBGBs debut on August 16th, 1974 to their final show in Los Angeles on August 6, 1996 - Monte A. Melnick was indeed the fifth Ramone. He lived with them, ate with them, drove them, partied with them, argued with them and saw almost every single show they ever played on the road. No one knew the band better than Monte and in On The Road With The Ramones he shares his tales of life on the road with the fearsome foursome for the first time.

Clemmy Ramone's interview is worth 2 cents. You are missing the point and your corrections are wack. Once a guy has been in a band 5 years, wrote a hit and a bunch of other great songs, played hundred of shows and ranks up there as many fans' favorite drummer, his opinion was worth more than 2 cents. So why would you choose to reduce it to that? Do you hate him personally? Because nothing else makes sense. Also, as Heiko reported, the producers had to track him down for 3 years and force him to talk. You make it sound like he jumped in front of the camera to promote his band. This is why you come off bad. Your hatred has no basis in reality.
Larry the looser
13th May 2003 - 03:03


James,
You remind me of the loosers that ruined Arturo Vega's website. Everytime somebody said anything they didn't agree with, these people were told to go post with Blink or the Backstreet Boys. Warm and gushy isn't the problem. Biased journalsim is. If you can think of a reason to hate Richie Ramone, other than the fact that he quit the band, please post it. Otherwise, take you criticisms over to Teen Beat, where fan mail takes precidence over truth. In 15 years, the worst thing anyone ever could come up with about Richie Ramone was that he quit cause he hated Johnny. In the context of what happened after that, this is one classy guy. If he thinks the Ramones hung around too long, he has good company. So did Dee Dee and about a million rock critics. Maybe that isn't the opinion you were looking for, but it doesn't make the guy a jerkoff, either.
Larry the looser
13th May 2003 - 02:53


If you really resent the way Marky kissed Johnny Ramone's ass, you ought to stick up for Richie, the only Ramone to tell the guy to stick it where the sun don't shine. At the end Joey rememebered how much he loved the guy, which is why Richie was invited to Joey's funeral, while Marky was told to stay home. So quit picking on Richie Ramone. He saw that Johnny Ramone was a shithead and quit. But while he was in the band he wrote some great songs and drummed faster than any living human being.

WOW! NEW AT&T Commercial using BLITZKRIEG BOP!

:::::::::

Hey...Seems like I really upset a few fans with my over-the-top "personal touch" and sarcasm in my review.

Oops.

I will, in the interest of being an unbiased site, remove my reference to Richie sounding like a resentful petty "jerkoff" - IN MY OPINION - in the END of the CENTURY Documentary and also remove the reference to Marks now famous A.K.A, which I personally think is just hilarious..."WIGGY".

I saw it on countless other fan sites but should NOT have introduced it at RAMONESMANIA!

We're way too classy for that. hahahahaha. imagine that?

It was born, from what I read many times now, by some fans hatred of Marks attempted allegiance to Johnny (Mr.Paycheck Signer)and Marks crass treatment of JOEY RAMONE, as percieved by some FANS it seems. This was AFTER MARK KNEW JOEY WAS REAL SICK, and fans nailed it with that nickname at the time.

Hell, I love it! A classic RAMONES twist by the fans themselves. THEY SPOKE IN RAMONES TONGUE! GABBA GABBA HEY! I laughed hard at first but then I got the mp3 files by using KAZAA or GROKSTER etc., of Marky humiliating Joey Ramone on Howard Stern publicly, I must admit, I called him "WIGGY" too. He wigged out AND wears a wig! WOW! I can't recall the public bad mouthing happening before then unless you find some Dee Dee rants after he left, but many fans did not like it and I love the nickname they blasted him with, maybe too much.

Hell, blast me for repeating it here, I DONT CARE. Fuck the high road too. Its funny shit.

ANYWAY...We are a "personal" site though. We don't sell anything or ask for anything, therefore I am beholden to no one. PERIOD! But I will try to keep it light at this site and fun and avoid any more negativity, in the future. It's my perception here and content. I ain't "official" nothing!

Marky Ramone saved the Ramones. And everybody worries about their job. Your review is biased and therefore irrelevant. Nobody cares about your personal motives. Write fair, or leave it to the experts at Rolling Stone. You are too close to the thing for any of us to care what you think. And I don't care what was on the top of Marky Ramone's head. I care what he had in his hands--the gift of golden drumming. To me, you sound like the looser, not Mark.

Hey moron-Wanna-be-a Rock-Critic: Marky Ramone's Wig is a stupid tired joke. And Richie Ramone was the shit. But nice that you showed up to give your two cents.

09th May 2003 - 03:41


When Ritchie showed up to throw in his "two cents" that was like five years in the band including the drumming on TTTD (which a lot of us fans like best) and a shitload of remarkable songs including Somebody Put Something In My Drink and Smash You--the title track for the rhino release. fact is, they did overstay their welcome dee dee said so, too. so now you can call dee dee "jerkoff" to show us that you are fair and not just a jerkoff yourself.

08th May 2003 - 01:05


Dear Mr. Aquafredda or Vinny, or Stinky, or whatever the fuck your name is: If you are the guy who wrote that idiotic review--who the fuck are you? The mouthpiece for a certain tyranical monster Ramone? Calling Marky the Wiggy and Ritchie a JErkoff. Marky is the guy in the wig who kept the band rockin for like 15 years and Ritchie wrote some of their best songs. Everybody is looking for the truth and you just spew the same crap we've been hearing for years. That's the same stupid shit we've been hearing for years. Obviously noone pays you for your opinion so you are totally entitled to it, but your sorry ass vendetta review is just ignorant, man. just a shame.
