Mickey Leigh: I Slept With Joey Ramone

Don't be fooled by the title: I Slept With Joey Ramone is not a tale of sexual exploits told by a jilted mistress. In reality, the reference is far more innocent. The biographer in question is actually Joey's brother, Mickey Leigh. Spanning from childhood to the band's rise and fall, Mickey's stories could be pulled directly from the lyrics of a Ramone's song: the boys survive a broken home, get in trouble in school, and find redemption in rock and roll. Mickey and co-writer Legs McNeil will stop by Café Nine on February 9th to celebrate the book's release and catch a surprise line-up of bands. Be prepared for an evening of blitzkrieg bop.
