Former RAMONES drummer Marky Ramone has inked a deal with Simon Schuster to publish his memoirs. He says, “It will be a book written just by me. For sure, out 2013.”
Marky Ramone is best known for the 15 years he spent drumming for the legendary RAMONES. Marky appeared in the cult classic film “Rock n Roll High School” in 1979, performed over 1700 shows and recorded over 15 albums (studio, live) with the RAMONES. In 2002, Marky and his bandmates became the first punk rock ensemble to be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.
Marky‘s radio show on Sirius XM satellite radio was rated the #2 show on the Faction channel in 2009. Also appearing on various TV shows (including Anthony Bourdain‘s “No Reservations” and IFC‘s “Z Rock”), Marky shows no signs of slowing down as he continues to tour the world with his new band, MARKY RAMONE’S BLITZKRIEG, also featuring Michale Graves (ex-MISFITS) on vocals, Crazy Joe on guitar and Graham Vanderveen on bass. The band plays all the classics that lead to Marky‘s induction into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame!
