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!

For Dee Dee Ramone fans only...
19 September 2003 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

Caught the 'interview' cum documentary "Hey! is Dee Dee home?" the other night and was sorely disappointed.

Shot on Beta SP, this docu's only merit is that it depicts Dee Dee Ramone's final interview a few years before his death (by drug overdose). At the time of the interview Dee Dee was happily 'clean & sober' but due to his extensive drug use he doesn't make a very reliable story teller.

A few of his anecdotes were amusing just because it was obvious that what he was telling was more paranoid flashback than a truthful recounting of past events in his life. He also tended to end stories abruptly by refusing to 'go there' so to speak.

Ramones-lovers will be sorely disappointed as the interview focuses primarily on Dee Dee's relationship with punker Johnny Thunders and their creation of one particular drug song.

Wait for the video on this one - rental only for diehard DD fans and drug users wanting to get a glimpse of one possible future (death after rehab)!

Final note: Besides being a heroin-user and punk guitarist, Dee Dee Ramone was an engaging 'New York' personality. Sadly, he just couldn't remember enough to make him worth listening to for an hour (and 3 minutes), IMHO.
