MY RAMONES, photographs by DANNY FIELDS
Danny Fields’ importance in the musical firmament is pretty much unsurpassed. His involvement over the evolution of music these past 50+ years has seen him connected to many of the most important acts ever. In this instance, his journey to becoming the first Ramones manager is testament to the fact that he had signed both The Stooges and The MC5 to Elektra Records. Add a dash of his teen pop sensibility from writing for 16 magazine and going on tour with the Bay City Rollers and no one could have been more suited to the job of bringing Dee Dee, Joey, Johnny and Tommy to an unsuspecting world. If you haven’t seen the documentary “Danny Says” then you should. This guy was present when a good deal of your rock n’ roll dreams were coming true. He’s the real thing and somehow he seems to have retained his fan sensibility despite all these years in a business that tends to burn people out double quick. From 1975 to 1980 he managed the Ramones, and photographed them constantly. These are some of the photos he took.
