Danny Fields loved the Ramones, and the Ramones loved Danny and here lays the sheer beauty of this book.
The Society Club is privileged to be hosting a book signing with Danny Fields, the first manager of the Ramones.
An informal conversation between Danny Fields and James Meynell, host of the Soho Garage Show on Soho Radio, will be followed by a Q&A and a book signing. Meynell will provide a musical soundtrack for the evening as well. His photo book, My Ramones, is a limited edition, published by First Third Books, and featuring over 250 black & white and colour photographs taken by him in 1976 and 1977. Most have never been seen before, and show the band on the road, backstage, meeting fans, recording, relaxing, posing for the camera, etc. Fields has provided commentary, from his very up-close POV, to accompany the images.
As the group's manager, always carrying his Nikon F1, Danny was with the Ramones in New York, Los Angeles, Texas, Paris, and of course London, when the band played at the Roundhouse and Dingwalls on the weekend of
July 4, 1976, a moment now--40 years later--being celebrated for its significance in the history of British rock and roll, hence ALL rock and roll, to the present day.
