(Joey Ramone by Shepard Fairey)
Our readership will hopefully forgive my digression from visual art momentarily, to talk about one of my other favorite subjects: The fact that The Ramones is the first and most influential punk band (heck even Joe Strummer will admit that) is a hard one to dispute. On February 20th, La Luz de Jesus Gallery in Los Angles will host a book reading and signing of “I Slept With Joey Ramone: A Family Memoir” authored by known musician and writer, Mickey Leigh, Joey’s brother and writer magazine editor Legs McNiel of Punk Magazine and SPIN fame. He also wrote several books including the definitive “Please Kill Me” . Guests at the signing include Mickey Leigh, Alan Arkush, P.J. Soles, Howie Pyro and other surprise guests. Now I don’t know about other pseudo punk historians such as myself, but this an opportunity to learn more about one of punks greatest figureheads, Joey Ramone as told by Leigh and McNiel with interviews with friends and family.
