Links to other Ramones sites
The Ramones Official Site -The "official" Ramones website is run by the band's long time manager Arturo Vega, Artie. Includes merchandise, photos, audio, and links.

Who out there remembers Trouser Press? This cool early eighties magazine was all about the alternative music scene (mostly from a British perspective). It folded in 1984. Editor Ira Robbins has brought it back to the web. Find reviews from the Trouser Press Record Guides to the 80's and 90's.
Bonus: check out the cover archive from the home page. The last issue featured Joey Ramone on the cover. I had a copy of this issue once upon a time.

Good books about the Ramones
"The Ramones: An American Band" by Jim Bessman.

"Lobotomy: Surviving the Ramones" by Dee Dee Ramone.

"Poison Heart: Surviving the Ramones" also by Dee Dee Ramone.

Trivia Question
A famous song from the 1960's was recorded by both The Ramones and The Sex Pistols.
Can you name this link between the two founding punk bands?
Answer is below.

Ramones shows I attended:
It has been almost 20 years since I first saw the Ramones play live. It was an experience like no other. A neverending sonic assault, songs played fast and with nothing more than DeeDee's intro of 1234. There was never anything like a Ramones show, and there probably never will be again. These are the shows I can remember being at. I still have the ticket stubs from a few of them. I'd like to get a scan of them to post here. Wolfgang's was destroyed in the Loma Prieta earthquake of 1989, the I-Beam closed up in the early 90's, and the historic Fillmore still reigns today as a top venue in SF to see concerts.
"Too Tough to Die" Tour- 1984 Cleveland, Ohio
"Animal Boy" Tour - Sept. 15th 1986, Wolfgang's San Francisco, CA
"unknown Tour" - July 11th 1988, The Fillmore San Francisco, CA
"Halfway to Sanity" Tour - 1987, The I-Beam San Francisco, CA

Trivia Question Answer
The Who's song "Substitute". Appears on the Ramones "Acid Eaters" CD and the Sex Pistols' "Great Rock & Roll Swindle". The Sex Pistols recorded it first, many years before the Ramones did.
