Commando: The Autobriography of Johnny Ramone
by Johnny Ramon
Johnny Ramone didn't pull any punches in real life and he doesn't on the page. He reveals his own issues with violence, whether he's beating up Malcolm McLaren for talking to his date or punching Joey just for being late to the movies. He disses some notable musical peers and even the Ramones' own talents in their early days before they got their act together, and illuminates his relationship with Linda, the love of his life. Brutally honest and candid, Commando is Johnny's story and the story of the Ramones told on his own terms.
The book also features Johnny's assessment of the Ramones' albums; a number of eccentric top-ten lists; pages from his legendary "black books," with concert notes; and scores of personal and professional photographs, many of which have never been published before.
