THE DEE DEE RAMONE STORY
This week, Dee Dee Ramone's ex-wife, Vera Ramone King, publishes his story, Poisoned Heart: I Married Dee Dee Ramone. I read an interview with her at the Suicide Girls' website. It sounds like a really interesting (and probably heartbreaking) book. I interviewed Dee Dee once after Joey Ramone died: he had a childish/crazy vibe, very much like Brian Wilson, but more troubled. I read about him in Henry Rollins' excellent 2003 book Broken Summers. I don't always read these books, but I think it's worth passing on the info to No Expiration readers.
