Editorial Reviews

"The screaming voice of a punk Lovecraft"—Joe Dante, horror icon and director of Gremlins, The Howling, and Twilight Zone: The Movie"Dee Dee Ramone was the essence of rock 'n' roll, infantile and cute and crazy and driven. He was also a supreme songwriter. He's immortal."—Richard Hell, author of I Dreamed I Was a Very Clean Tramp"I loved Dee Dee Ramone. What a sense of humor! His acute ironic views made his lyrics for the Ramones characteristic of the band's huge success around the world, from then right through to today."—Debbie HarryScanner Zine, 6/18/16“Darkly witty, macabre, mildly disturbing, imaginative and easy to read.”SLUG , 6/29/16“Reveals the trappings of a life that was subject to the dangerous intrigue of the infamous Chelsea Hotel.”
