Dee Dee Ramone was more prolific than many of us would give him credit. Frankly, I thought that he was an asshole since I first became a Ramones fan about a decade ago; Joey, Tommy, and even Joey were decent guys on and off stage, but Dee Dee just rubbed me the wrong way until I finished this book.
I'm still not a fan of DeeDee, but the book explains a lot about himself and his mode of living. Also, he's a very good writer.
DeeDee may not win over any fans with this book, but he is very honest with himself and his junkiedom. His striving for normalcy in what was a very fucked up life is also commendable.
