Danny Fields

DANNY FIELDS (New York, USA, 1939)

Danny-Fields-70s-Portrait-copy-2The importance of Danny Fields in the musical firmament can hardly be exaggerated. A legendary manager, publicist, journalist and record label executive, Fields was at the heart of every major episode in rock music history for two decades and is considered one of the driving forces behind the punk rock explosion in the United States.

He was instrumental in launching the careers of iconic bands like The Doors, The MC5, The Stooges and the Ramones, and he was the ultimate “insider” and king of cool in the 1960s and 70s, when he rubbed shoulders with Andy Warhol and the entire Factory gang, Nico, Janis Joplin, Leonard Cohen, Iggy Pop and Lou Reed. When Danny first saw the Ramones in a 15-minute set at CBGB in New York in 1974, he offered to become their manager on the spot and soon landed them a recording contract. He represented the band from the beginning, accompanying them on their first European and American tours while photographing them on stage, with their fans and in the most ordinary situations.

Taken between 1975 and 1977, Danny’s photographs offer a rare glimpse of the band’s life on tour, backstage or recording their first album. In these charming, sweet, spontaneous images—many of which are unknown to the general public—we see the four original Ramones, Danny’s Ramones, during his time as their manager.

Fields’s personal archives are sold exclusively at La Fiambrera.
