revealing the Ramones

What’s a punk rock book release without some drama and confrontation? Vera Davie, wife of the late Dee Dee Ramone, has written Poisoned Heart: I Married Dee Dee Ramone, an inside look at the ’70s punk rock band the Ramones. However, the executor of Dee Dee's estate, Ira Herzog, has gone to court to stop publication of the book, claiming Davie broke a deal with him that said he could review and change anything she wrote about the bassist.

Hopefully the book comes out – it sounds pretty candid. Poisoned Heart details Dee Dee’s first heroin overdose, chaotic recording sessions with the notorious Phil Spector, and the reason behind the band’s breakup. It also includes dozens of never-before-seen pictures.

If you’re a fan of the Ramones, you’ll definitely want to get a copy. For now the book is set to be released in June, and Vera, who is writing under the pen name Vera Ramone King, is planning a NY book signing June 8.
