From the YouTube notes:
“Home made video, by me, Mickey Leigh. My brother, Joey, had been seeing me cover this song since the late 80′s, He loved the shorter arrangement, the guitar solos, the harmonies, the energy, …all of it. One day he told me he was going to do it with the Ramones…and then he laughed. In 1994 Joey suggested he and I record it together.”
This video includes some great family photos that Mickey has diligently archived, as well drawings done by Joey himself, which Mickey found in Joey’s apt. This song is one that Mickey had been doing with his band years prior to Joey suggesting they record it together. Joey loved Mickey’s guitar playing, and prefered his shortened, energized arrangement of the song as opposed to the original written and recorded in the early 70′s by a band called Blodwyn Pig, which they both loved.
