RAMONES INTERVIEW - FEBRUARY 14, 1981

Printer-friendly version

I'm so happy to have found this because people never believe you when you say you once interviewed The Ramones. This was recorded on February 14, 1981 with myself and WUSB's Bill Senikowich. Johnny and Joey were fun to talk to, not at all stressed about the concert they were about to perform at Stony Brook. They told us what it was like to work with Phil Spector, when recording for the new album would begin, how there's a different mentality in England, and the overall slowness of progress. They even recorded some IDs for us. And, of course, when we walked them over to the gym to set up, we were completely mobbed by fans. (It was never easy to hide if you were with Joey Ramone.)
