Dee Dee Ramone, who brought us such unbelievable bubblegum gems as "Rockaway Beach," brings us his account of being a member of the Ramones for seventeen years. He depicts how Johnny imposed and enforced endless absurd rules upon him, the complete and utter chaos of their daily life, and how all of this begot no significant mainstream success. But most important to this book is the frighteningly realistic (if not terribly well written) scene depicting his heroin withdrawl on a flight back from Europe to New York. If you saw End of the Century, you already know how much of a wonderful wackjob weirdo Dee Dee was. This is him trying to be coherent.
