Before I start, don't get me wrong - I used to be massive fan of the Ramones. I literally listened to all their stuff, got the t-shirt and joined the fan-club (Crazy times!). The whole New York Punk thing was right up my street when I finally bought this DVD wanting to get some idea about the 'natural habitat' of my Yankee rock stars.
I enjoyed the DVD, the Marky Ramone home movies were fun - all the goofing around and pranking band members. That was fun.
This is my issue with the DVD and its content - it isn't a silver lined tale of a rise to the Rock and Roll Hall of fame, its a sad downfall of a really good band. The scenes with Deedee Ramone being sadly manic, the weird new bassist C.J looking like a young teenager amongst the ageing rock stars barely fitting in to their band t-shirts.
It was far from what I expected and far from what the Ramones used to be. No longer black and white photographs of them walking down 53rd and 3rd looking cool and fresh but video of Marky Ramone using the toilet.
Overall the amount of stuff on the DVD is worth what you pay, all the extra and interviews. But its really tired and hopeless.
They all hate each other too. That makes it so much worse.
'Ramones - End of the Century' is much better. Ramones - End Of The Century [DVD
