“Marky Ramone is as iconic as they come. With his dark shades, leather jacket, long hair and drumsticks at the ready, the legendary percussionist of the Ramones is a living testament to the enduring legacy of punk rock.
Marky joined the New York City band after its original drummer, Tommy, decided to leave. That decision to travel and record with the Ramones changed Marky’s life. He would spend 15 years with Johnny, Joey and Dee Dee, helping to bring to life such classics as “Do You Remember Rock ‘N’ Roll Radio?” and “I Wanna Be Sedated.” Memories of his time with the Ramones — lasting two stints, 1978 to 1983 and 1987 to 1996 — are the subject of Marky’s new memoir, Punk Rock Blitzkrieg: My Life as a Ramone. Within these pages, fans can find wild stories of the drummer’s upbringing, his music career before the Ramones and his latest work with Sirius XM.”
