Hey! It’s Burt Kearns & Joey Ramone, circa 1978

Punk originals the Ramones recorded (in seven days) their first album 40 years ago this month. And the fortieth anniversary tributes begin with this throwback photo of future Tabloid Baby author Burt Kearns and future rock ’n' roll legend Joey Ramone at the recording session for Shrapnel’s single, ‘Hey,’ on which they both appeared vocally. 

And with Legs McNeil, future author of the acclaimed punk history, Please Kill Me among other works, and future host of and producer on Kearns’ TV mini-series, Adults Only: The Secret History of The Other Hollywood (which led to McNeil’s book, The Other Hollywood: The Uncensored Oral History of the Porn Film Industry)
