I Slept With Joey Ramone
is a must-read for any Ramones fan, not just for the inside scoop on what a dick Johnny was, but the book is also a sweet coming-of-age tale of two brothers dealing with divorce, bullies and a burning desire for rock & roll. Written by Joey's younger sibling Mickey Leigh with Punk
magazine founder Legs McNeil, the portrait of Joey that emerges is of a socially awkward kid with some serious mental issues -- not exactly your typical rock star in the making, that's for sure. This book reading and signing features Leigh, along with Rock & Roll High School
director Alan Arkush and co-stars P.J. Soles, and Ramones crony Howie Pyro.
