Présentation de l'éditeur

From their 1974 debut at New York's premier punk dive, through the classic albums and blistering live sets, The Ramones cut an unforgettable swathe through two decades of pop, setting the scene for punk and hardcore with honed-down songs and ferocious 20 minute sets, but always putting the music first.
Seen through the eyes of the people who were there at the time, including musicians, managers, producers, publicists and New York punk scenesters, this book shows the heroic Ramones staying faithful to their own unique musical vision right to the bitter end. This updated edition now climaxes with the sad death of guitarist Johnny Ramone.

Book Description

The story of the band from Queens is the paradigm rock saga- a litany of drugs, fallings-out, financial catastrophes, inter-band rivalries, bad management, and death. A sad, exhilarating rock biography.

Un portrait de famille relativement lucide (même si parfois le mythe Ramones est bien entretenu) + une analyse musicale assez objective + des photos cool = un documentaire captivant.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Very Good ---a Bit Too Subjective at Times---But Good! 19 juillet 2003
Par K. Brown - Publié sur
Format: Relié
I just finished reading this book, and have gone from being a casual Ramones fan to an intense fan and great admirer of the band. Everett True did an awesome job showing how The Ramones functioned as individuals and as a group.
What fascinated me is how the group stayed together for over twenty years, functioning as a band despite intense differences. Each member seemed to have a different vision, temperment and political stance, but they remained professional enough to keep working hard and cranking out great music.
True shows liberal Joey, Johnny the ultra-conservative; Dee Dee and Joey the artists, Johnny the workhorse who at times seemed like the "disciplinary glue" that kept the band well-marketed and organized. We see Tommy, who intrigued me the most as he tired of being an active member early on, but stayed involved with the band's production throughout the years. You see the out-of-control sides of Marky and Dee Dee, and the different recovery trips they sought. Band members often fought and held grudges, but rarely did it effect their professional work. Despite a cult following without huge record sales, these guys kept working hard.
True also put good effort into showing us the unsung members like CJ and Ritchie, and he shows how various crew members and artists worked as a family.
The book's only flaw is a biggie. True frequently cites what the band's best work is as if his personal likes are the final word. This does not happen once or twice, but throughout the book. Annoying! HOWEVER--- to his credit, he did print viewpoints that conflicted with his own, and he did so without discounting each person's word. I honestly can overlook Everett True's subjective flaw, because the work he put into this book is incredible. You can tell that he was a huge Ramones fan from day one, yet was focused enough to paint both their glory and their shortcomings.
Judging from other interviews I read with Johnny Ramone, I get the feeling that Everett True painted Johnny as more of a "hardnose bust-yer-chops" type than he actually is. Still, he did show Johnny's near military disclipline may be part of what kept the Ramones professional and reliable.
If you've never even heard of the Ramones, I recommend this book. You will read a fascinating account of a rock band that, conflicting individual dynamics, became a cohesive and legendary rock group.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Hey Ho! Worth the Dough! 19 octobre 2003
Par Un client - Publié sur

Probably the best book on the Ramones to date. Everett True has done his home work, and it's makes for an exciting read for Ramones fans and beyond. Ensuring the information was fresh, the author had interviewed CJ, Tommy, and Markey (among others in the "Ramones family") exclusivliy for this publication. Also to his advantage he had been in jornalism since the 70's and had conducted several interviews with other members (except Richie). You're going to read some negitive criticism about the author being too subjective, however I think he backs up his opinions with strong reasoning adn examples. And his critiques are never far off.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 The Boys! The Band! The Best! 9 août 2003
Par Glenn S. Hawley - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Well written, researched & executed Biography of one of the Greatest Bands of Punk or Rock or Whatever. The story is a little sad, but I now understand even more the work ethic and obstacles that this band dealt with. We know the Great songs, great albums, great Movie, but we get some insight into this not so D.U.M.B. Little band from Queens NY! I still wake up at Night wondering why they were not The Biggest Band in the world! Joey is Put up as an almost mythical Romantic Hero Figure, while Johnny is really villified. Dee Dee is treated as a sort of Retarded Genius. Tommy, Marky, CJ, and Richie are touched upon nicely. 3 out of 5 for the imbalance of viewpoints But overall not to be missed.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Biased but worth a Ramones fan's time 9 mars 2003
Par Corey Ramone - Publié sur
Format: Relié
I would like to second the review written by davidkam. This book is worth reading as it takes you through the entire history of the Ramones, up to Dee Dee's death. The book also sheds a greater degree of light on the band's dynamics and conflicts than what "Ramones: An American Band," does. There are a couple of major flaws with this book. Firstly, as said by davidkam, much of this book is the writers personal opinion about how each album sounds and what songs are good. Secondly, I often got the sense that he primarily researched the material for his book through the net. Consequently, there are some holes in his continuity. I really wish he would have got off his ... and tracked down Ritchie Ramone, and gone through as many hoops as possible to speak to Johnny. A great deal of the perspective in this book comes from Arturo Vega and some others closer to Joey than any other band member. In the end, it's an interesting read that any serious Ramones fan would probably find worth the time.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Heroic, stoic - The Ramones 21 mars 2015
Par Lynette McClenaghan - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
The Ramones’ place in the rock pantheon is now assured. But there does persist an image of the band as dumb, cartoonish, playing the same songs over and over forever. Even today writers can dismiss them as a crude, one-trick pony. A recent book on the history of rock complained that their first album was poorly recorded with dreadful sound quality; a way of having a cheap shot while also having to, reluctantly, acknowledge their place in and contribution to, the history of rock music.

Everett True does a fine job of mythbusting, with a sensitive and nuanced account of the band. All the expected biographical bases are covered. True doesn’t shy away from criticising them, collectively or individually, but he gives the reader plenty of insights and genuine appreciation of the band and their music. Just one example: his discussion of ‘Rockaway Beach’. He correctly identifies the song’s sixties inspirations, quotes Legs McNeil’s depiction of Rockaway Beach’s awfulness, then concludes by saying, “But that was the genius of the Ramones: they could find beauty in the unlikeliest of spots”. True thereby places them in an artistic tradition which focuses on, even glamorises, the demi-monde. Like, for instance, the writer Tobias Wolff, the Ramones can find, and create for us, beauty in ugliness.

True also quotes from many, many other writers, showing how at the time and subsequently, the band has had a huge influence. He has interviewed a raft of people, then and more recently, to garner a range of opinions and observations. At 341 pages of text it’s a mighty tome, exhaustive. If you have any interest in the Ramones you must buy this book.
