Portuguese version of Mickey Leigh’s I SLEPT WITH JOEY RAMONE coming to Brazil on November 4th

October 28th, 2013 | By vibethink

Don’t let the title fool you. This book is not about sleeping. It’s about awakening.Mickey Leigh labored for six years writing this utterly compelling story of him and his older brother’s lives – including the amazing journey that led to the genesis of legendary Joey Ramone. The result is a book titled: I Slept with Joey Ramone, which will be released in Portuguese on November 4th, 2013 as Eu dormi com Joey Ramone: memórias de uma família punk rock.Vividly portraying his brothers band’s career from inception to final performance, the story focuses on the relationship between two brothers and family dynamics. That aspect of the book makes it equally appealing to fans of the Ramones as well as those completely unfamiliar with them.With Legs McNeil, co-founder of PUNK magazine dipping into his treasure chest of rare interview material, we added key quotes that widely balance the perspective of many rather than just one or two.Praised by the press and cherished not only by Ramones fans, but by lovers of truly inspirational stories in the US, Finland and France where the book has already been published, Brazilians will finally be able to behold this endearingly realistic portrait of the man who struggled to find his voice, and of the brother who loved and encouraged him…from the beginning.The release of the book will be followed by four book signings by Mickey in São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Porto Alegre and Caxias do Sul.

R.I.P. Arturo Vega, artistic director for The Ramones

resto, mi querido y viejo amigo. Rest, my dear old friend. He was there, almost from the very beginning, in 1974, creating unique images for the band with a precise understanding of their concept. Giving them everything he had to give, including lodging in his home. He was the first person to join me in helping the Ramones get on the road, when they couldn’t afford to pay anyone.. We loaded, and unloaded their equipment together- then I worked the stage, and he worked the stage-lights. We crunched ourselves into crevices in the van between guitar and road cases, trying to catch some sleep on those long rides. If we were lucky we got to share a bed. That was in the beginning. I left, and he went on to do so much for that band. NO ONE in that organization took better care of my brother– and he continued to do so, until the end. I’m devestated at his loss.

Mickey’s Homemade Video for “See My Way”

November 11th, 2011 | By admin

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.
