Before Richie Ramone and I started an interview, we had a call with
great Ramones fan Gaston Sanchez who has started to run Richie's official site. Gaston
wanted to say happy birthday to me (and to Joey of course). Joey and I
share same birthday.
Richie Ramone and I started interview at Joey
Ramone's old (and last)
apartment on May 19, 2010. I recorded interview just in case with tape
recorder and video recorder, just to make sure audio quality turns out
perfectly. And of course it is so great to have a
memory of our interview to my private collection in video format. I
explained to Richie
how I have always kept promises to Tommy Ramone, Dee Dee Ramone, Marky
Ramone, CJ Ramone etc. of me not copying my recordings to
I will publish Richie Ramone's interview later, it is big work to type
up by some of my
friends. Here are some questions I asked:
1) I and some fans feels you were saving the Ramones in 1983, things
were messy and you and Tommy (as a producer) helped the Ramones get
back to more original sound with Too Tough To Die album.
2) Already after first shows Joey Ramone said of you nice comments in
newspapers and said that you brought new good spirit to the band...
3) How about Joey as a golfer? You played golf together.
4) Can you tell longer how you decided to quit the Ramones? Did you
really believed you were going to be fired?
5) You played some shows in late 80's and early 90's, as you said to me
in 2006, that you hadn't played a show for ten years? (Richie told me of
his bands of which most of the fans has no any idea...)
6) When did you met the last time with Joey and Dee Dee?
7) Do you wanna tell some comments other Ramones members told of songs
you wroted or co-wroted?
8) There were two signings, 1997 and 1999, which other Ramones members
attended. Were you invited?
9) Can you tell how you got involved with Animal
Defence League? Tiffany
told me, you has three rescued dogs.
