Marky Ramone Open Conversation at Crescent Ballroom
On Tuesday, Jan. 20, Marky Ramone will hit the stage at Crescent Ballroom to talk with Arizona Republic‘s music reporter Ed Masley.
Ramone, drummer and sole surviving member of The Ramones, recently released a memoir titled “Punk Rock Blitzkrieg: My Life as a Ramone” that tells his behind-the-scenes story as a member of legendary punk band The Ramones.
The Ramones rose to fame in the 1970s and are often credited as the band that defined the sound of punk rock. In its 22 years of existence, the group performed 2,263 concerts and is ranked #26 on Rolling Stone‘s “100 Greatest Artists of All Time” list.
“From the cult film Rock ‘n’ Roll High School through ‘I Wanna Be Sedated’ through his own struggle with alcoholism, Marky Ramone sets the record straight, painting an unflinching picture of the dysfunction behind the band that changed a generation.“
Tickets to the Crescent Ballroom event can be purchased for $33 and come with a copy of the autobiography. If you’re looking to come with a friend, two tickets and one book can be purchased for $38.
