I love The Ramones.....

Not just for their songs and certainly not for the now ubiquitous t-shirt (cheers Urban Outfitters). But everything about them. A lead singer with no social skills and OCD, a right-wing guitarist who sees the band as a business and (best of all) a junkie sometime rent-boy bass player who would rather be rapper, plus a succession of drummers. They were great. Ok, so they were guilty of some terrible rock cliches (Spinal Tap owes them alot) and never quite made it really huge, but somehow this just adds to their appeal. Dee Dee is my favourite.

This probably says more about me than any biography, so seems an apt way to start this blog.
