Storyline

This program features Lech Kowalski's 2003 documentary feature about the life and times of Ramones bassist and all-star burn out, Dee Dee Ramone (1952-2002). Dee Dee's life is a fascinating character study of a punk rock legend who never grew up. Listen to Dee Dee's account with director Lech Kowalski, to discuss Johnny Thunders for the film 'Born to Lose.' Relive the battlefield history of rock and roll through the memories of this ordinary, yet extraordinary guy from Queens whose songs distilled frustration, humor, and pleasure, into the energetic melodies that made the Ramones a worldwide influence!

So-so, only for super hardcore fans
14 November 2003 | by (Copenhagen) – See all my reviews

The Ramones' legendary bassist is interviewed and filmed mostly in '92. Stories deal with his drug buddies Johnny Thunders, Jerry Nolan, Richard Hell, 'who wrote Chinese Rocks?' and why Johnny Ramone didnt want it as a Ramones song, gettin' beat up by Debbie Harry (horse shoe in a handbag, haha), selling Joey Ramone's TV for dope, tattoos, heroine, cats, NYC cops, rehab, recording with Stiv Bators in Paris in '88 etc. All pretty sad (but fascinating) since Dee Dee talks as a 'survivor' but was stupid enough to die of an overdose June 5th last year.

At 64 mins its too long and only for diehard fans of 70s NYC glam/punk scene. You might wanna read "Please Kill Me" before watchin' this namedroppin' fest. Incl. neat but way too short footage of the glorious Heartbreakers.

6/10
