it was ok
Read from February 12 to 16, 2010

imagine what it would be like to read an essay by a third grader who knows how to name-drop. and that essay had to be 160 pages long.

only reason it gets two stars is because of a couple stories that were interesting and the photo sections.

jesus god. get a fucking ghost writer.

Tim really surprised it was published as-is. but like... STORIES ABOUT DEE DEE, so you can't stop reading...

Tim I think a well-curated oral history, a la Please Kill Me, may be the best bet. There's a lot of good Ramones stuff in there, including my favorite Dee Dee story, where he talks about how the Ramones were so negative since their first five songs were all "I don't wanna...", so in order to be more positive they wrote "Now I Wanna Sniff Some Glue". Classic.
