Présentation de l'éditeur

When the Ramones recorded their debut album in 1976, it heralded the true birth of punk rock. Unforgettable front man Joey Ramone gave voice to the disaffected youth of the seventies and eighties, and the band influenced the counterculture for decades to come. With honesty, humor, and grace, Joey’s brother, Mickey Leigh, shares a fascinating, intimate look at the turbulent life of one of America’s greatest—and unlikeliest—music icons. While the music lives on for new generations to discover, I Slept with Joey Ramone is the enduring portrait of a man who struggled to find his voice and of the brother who loved him.

Legs McNeil is the coauthor of Please Kill Me: The Uncensored Oral History of Punk, a book widely hailed as the definitive work on the subject. The founder of the seminal magazine that gave punk its name, he is a former editor at Spin and editor-in-chief of Nerve. McNeil also wrote Marilyn Chambers's comeback film, Still Insatiable.

Comment ne pas re-tomber amoureux(se) de ce groupe mythique ?
Mickey Leigh nous fait revivre le parcours hors norme de son grand frère, avec humour et amour. "...sans les Ramones, Joey n'aurait pas survécu..." ; (et pourtant, est-ce qu'on ne ressent pas un peu d'amertume dans le discours de Mickey ?).

How not to fall (again) in love with this mythic band?
Mickey Leigh brings to life his big brother's so special journey, with humor and love. "...without the Ramones, Joey wouldn't have survived..."; (yet, doesn't one feel some bitterness in Mickey's speech?).

Just great! Ramones for ever !!! Joey I love u... <3

5.0 étoiles sur 5 If you love music, you have to read this! 18 mars 2011
Par Kimberly Taylor - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This book is a wonderful insight into the birth of punk music, and as a fan of both the punk genre and the Ramones specifically, it was a very intimate look inside for me, and I loved it for that. It is well worth the read for the historical value alone.

More than that though, it introduced me to a person I never knew - Jeff Hyman. I was a pool of tears at the end of the book, which concludes with Joey Ramone's passing. By this point though, I was no longer thinking of him as "Joey Ramone", but as Jeff - a man who suffered from birth to death with one ailment or another, of one type or another, whether it be physical, emotional or mental.

After reading the book, I almost felt dirty thinking of him as anything other than Jeff. I still love the Ramone's for their music and what they did historically in music, but my heart breaks for the man who was Jeff Hyman. I just wanted to make his hurting stop and make all the pain go away.

Mickey, thank you for introducing us to your brother and your family. I'll never look at "Joey" the same way again.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I Slept With Joey Ramone 4 septembre 2011
Par Athena R. Schaffer - Publié sur
*The Crowgrrl has a confession to make - I've always had a huge crush on Joey Ramone. I've always loved The Ramones' music, and even have collectibles such as The Ramones shot glasses and there's a Joey Ramone doll in my office.. Hearing Joey's distinct voice from the CD speakers or even unexpectedly on the radio always brings a smile to my face.

I've been lucky enough to cross paths with the Ramones many times in my journalistic career. I've interviewed Joey, Johnny, and Marky for outlets I've worked for including Performance Magazine, Amusement Business Magazine, and, Marky for The Crowgrrl's Perch. I did a story on the first Joey Ramone Birthday Bash for Amusement Business in 2001. And I was at the show at the Bayou in Washington, DC, that was mentioned in the book - the Ramones opened for Blue Oyster Cult...BOC have been like brothers to me since my radio days when I first got into this industry, and they were the ones who introduced me to the raw brilliance of the Ramones!

So, of course, I couldn't wait to get my hands on a copy of the book I Slept With Joey Ramone written by the person who probably knew Joey best - his younger brother Mickey Leigh (along with the brothers' long time friend Legs McNeil.) (Touchstone Books/Simon & Schuster) And I was NOT disappointed! Mickey bares his soul to give us the clearest portrait ever of this great musical icon!

This dynamic book is an intimate look at the triumphs and tragedies that defined the lives of both brothers. In reality, this is actually Mickey's biography although his brother plays a huge part in it. But it does show how Joey ultimately triumphed over overwhelming obstacles to become an icon that defined the Punk genre of music. It's an incredibly inspiring story!

Actually, the triumph was the result of the strength of the love and bonding between the brothers and their mother Charlotte through their life journey of hardship, courage, loss, and hope. It was not an easy journey, to say the least. And besides their Love, the other constant that got them through was their love of Music.

One thing that makes this book stand out from many of the other music bios on the shelves, we actually see the origins and inspiration for the SONGS themselves! You cannot read this book without the music running through your cranium as well.

Although I was already a Joey fan before picking up the book, I gained a new respect for the man and the hardships he overcame. We all knew about his fight with lymphatic cancer and his frequent foot infections that caused show cancellations. What we didn't know was the "sacrococygeal teratoma" tumor attached to his spine at birth that threatened his very life from the first breath, and after it was removed still caused spina bifida problems. And he also had a lifelong battle with OCD! Any one of those problems might have caused a lesser person to give up, not live Life to the fullest, but Joey had the inner strength to fight back and become an Icon, still loved and respected by an army of fans, including musicians he inspired and other industry insiders!

As I got closer and closer to the book's back cover, I started feeling pangs of dread at the inevitable and tragic ending. The world surely lost a great talent and remarkable individual on that fateful day in April, 2001 - how a brave battle against lymphatic cancer was lost just a month before Joey's 50th birthday. And I'm sure it must've been harder for the author to write than readers trying to see the page through tears.

Although the family lived in Manhattan, Forest Hills, Queens, and Greenwich Village, Mickey gave the Big Apple an almost "small town" feel, as the founding members of The Ramones knew each other pretty much since they were kids. It's a fascinating look to see their development in music, and how they ultimately evolved into the pioneers who created a genre (and many subgenres that came afterwards). There's no denying The Ramones changed the face of music forever!

The Crowgrrl highly recommends this book! It's dynamic, powerful, inspirational, and at times bittersweet. Gabba Gabba HEY!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A Good Read 29 octobre 2013
Par subwolley - Publié sur
I really enjoyed reading this book, and finished it rather quickly. Though it did feel at times that author Mickey Leigh was still harboring ill feelings towards his brother during the book, you have to read the whole thing to know that they did make up in the end. There's no doubt that Mickey and Joey loved each others as best they could. I felt this book was an honest telling of their life together, and sometimes the truth isn't always pretty or nice. I enjoyed reading about their childhood and felt it was the most touching part of the book. It was great reading about the career of the Ramones as well. I was sad to finish this book, and sad knowing how it was going to end; with the sad loss of Joey Ramone.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Very good, but a little too much detail. 3 août 2013
Par Lisa Whittington - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I wanted to know all these things about Joey Ramone, but I feel as though Mickey Leigh shared way too much information about his brother. This book is VERY one-sided, making Mickey Leigh look like an angel with his brother screwing him over. I didn't particularly care for that.

Who knows, the things he wrote may be true, but I highly doubt he's as innocent as he's making himself out to be. It'll certainly knock down your opinion of Joey if you believe every word he writes. Even so, I believe Joey was a beautiful person and not even this book will ever change my opinion of him.

All in all, this was a very good read. It has TONS of information on Joey, even personal things. I found out a lot of things I didn't even know about him and I couldn't tear my eyes away. I read it fairly quickly, and was honestly disappointed when it was over because I never wanted it to end.

If you're a hardcore Ramones fan, or simply love Joey, this is definitely a book worth reading. You'll just have to ignore Mikey making himself sound like saint Peter, or you'll never get through the first few chapters.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Real Ramone 22 mai 2012
Par Donald E. Gilliland - Publié sur
Joey Ramone was one of the greatest voices in rock and roll. But The Ramones never got the proper respect (or album sales) that they deserved, and Joey remained one of the most under-appreciated singers of his generation. This is a "family memoir" of the late great lead singer, written by his younger brother (who as also a musician). It's by no means a definite history of the Ramones, dwelling a bit too much on the author's own turbulent career and the personal lives of the band members, but it does offer a unique look at the author's relationship with his brother Jeff (Joey Ramone) and the hardships the Joey had to deal with during his brief life. Mickey Leigh obviously has a unique perspective on his brother's life and offers a warts and all account. It may not make some of Joey's diehard fans happy, but it also may dispel a few myths about the "glamorous" rock and roll lifestyle. Like many of us, Joey had to deal with a lot of adversity and sadness, while every once in a while enjoying life's little triumphs. Any fan of the Ramones, or rock music, should find this book very interesting.
