In the mid-1970s The Ramones reinvigorated a lifeless rock ’n’ roll scene. Drugs, prostitution, teenage rebellion: the punk quartet wrote about what they knew—and the result was an explosive, radical new sound. Their honest, frenzied, and furious performances, not to mention their iconic look, would change rock music forever. Told through the eyes of Dee Dee Ramone, this graphic novel traces the life of the band’s creative soul, spanning his troubled years at a military school in Germany, his early experiences with opiates, his family’s relocation to New York, and his first encounters with fellow misfits Joey, Johnny, and Tommy. This fascinating graphic portrait of the band’s development takes readers from The Ramone’s dismal first show to Dee Dee’s death in 2002, shortly after the band was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
