A band I was in opened for the Ramones once.
I was in the Ramones dressing room feeling famous and
turned towards what I thought was a coat rack. It was Joey.
He was really tall and really skinny and had really big, wet lips.
I said 'Hi, Joey'. He said something like 'Heaouw ne bishoo shnn'.
I left the dressing room really quickly. He scared me.
This club isn't there anymore. It burned down.
The Rusty Nail, Sunderland , MA.
While in the Ramones dressing room I thanked Johnny for inspiring me
and asked him about his 'all downstrokes' method of strumming.
He reported that it was the only way he could keep time.
They do not seem to be having a good time, yet they still do this.
What do you suppose drives these men in leather?
Dee Dee. He ain't there no mo'.
I once fixed the transmission of Jim Joe Greedy's van in the parking
lot of this club, using a coat hanger and some pliers.
Now he plays with Angry Johnny and the Killbillies. Jim Joe, Not Dee Dee.
