“LOBOTOMY: SURVIVING THE RAMONES" by Dee Dee Ramone

Reissue edition of the legendary founding member of the Ramones’ classic memoir, published to coincide with the 40th anniversary of the band’s groundbreaking debut album, with a new foreword by fellow Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, the ‘Queen of Rock ’n’ Roll’, Joan Jett. The cover, printed on metallic gold foil, showcases a vintage image of Dee Dee; an outtake from the photo shoot for the Ramones legendary debut album cover as shot by photographer Roberta Bayley in 1976 in NYC.

Lobotomy is the most lurid and unlikely temperance tract yet from the underbelly of rock ‘n’ roll. On a wild roller-coaster ride from his fucked-up childhood in Berlin and Munich to his lonely, methadone-quaffing stay at a cheap hotel in Earl’s Court and newfound peace on the straight and narrow, Dee Dee Ramone catapults us into the raw world of sex, addiction, and two-minute songs. It isn’t pretty. With the velocity of a Ramones song, Lobotomy rockets through headlining days at CBGB to the breakup of the Ramones’ happy family with an unrelenting backbeat of hate and squalor. His girlfriend ODs; running buddy Johnny Thunders steals his ode to heroin, “Chinese Rocks”; Sid Vicious shoots up using toilet water; and a pistol-wielding Phil Spector holds the band hostage in Beverly Hills. Hey! Ho! Let's Go!
