About 300 pages in to Born to Run. Very good read. Easy conversational style.
Enjoyable. Do I need a Telecaster now? :)

This one's another ripper!

Having never read any other Ramones related books, this gave me a wonderful insight into the workings of this legendary band.
From Johnny's tight-arse ways, to Dee-Dee's "take anything at all" habits (I had thought he was purely a junkie), to Joeys terrible OCD and Marky's alcoholism and interest in restoring classic American cars, it was hard to put down once I had started reading.

I could be wrong, but I think that was one of the other bassists after DD.
Maybe CJ?
