User reviews about this book
By PureSalem Guitars
Johnny was such an amazing and influential guitarist … what he did he did better than anyone. The Ramones legacy is sealed as one of he most important AMERICAN Rock n roll bands. Along with The Velvet Underground no other American groups have had such a far reaching affect on shaping todays musical landscape. Their influence can be heard amongst todays bands. Johnny Ramone revels what life was like inside of the Ramones in a very honest and direct way. This was such a fantastic read that I did not want to put the book down. You coud always count on Johnny speaking his mind. He was the real deal.
I could put up with Johnny Ramone's child like writing. I wish he could be somewhat deprecating but he clearly had little sense of humor about himself. So another arrogant rock star gets his say. But I don't think his simplistic writing does his simplistic guitar playing justice. Some stories are funny but not many. It sounds like it was hell being stuck on the road with these guys. Anyway it seems like this book lacked an editor to clean up the repetition and focus Johnny back to the presumably interesting guy whose relentless guitar chords and songs I will always love so much...
Short, direct, simple.
Just like his playing. The big surprise: his favorite band was The Doors.
This peek inside the mind of Johnny Ramones mind is everything I hoped it would be. I have been a rabid Ramones fan since I discovered them at age 10 in 1980.
Johnny tells it like it was and gives the reader a glimpse of what is what like to be a ramone.
Great, great , great!
I loved it. Great insight into one of Americas best and most stealthily influential bands.
A great read. Makes we wish I saw the live. Interesting insights to the behind the scenes activities. A Little surprising in how they dealt with fame and their desire for more. Enigmatic.
What a ride, hey ho, let's go
I've always been a fan but after reading this book in 2 sittings, I want to be a bigger fan. Great story and great music.
