The Ramones may have dissolved in 1996, but new generations are constantly being introduced to the music of the punk rock architects. There are millions of Ramones fans worldwide who were too young to check out the band while they were still active, but drummer Marky Ramone and his 'Blitzkrieg' act are giving fans a taste of what a live Ramones show was like back in the day.
One of the more unusual pairings in rock music has just been created for an upcoming tour. Party rocker Andrew W.K. has accepted an invitation from legendary Ramones drummer Marky Ramone to sing for the stickman's Marky Ramone's Blitzkrieg outfit. This means that Andrew W.K. will fill the shoes of the late great Joey Ramone as Blitzkrieg pummel through more than 30 Ramones classics per night!
Andrew W.K. is a weird dude. Weird, but awe-inspiring. The party rock frontman, motivational speaker and television host has always possessed a special connection with his fans, so to continue that powerful and bizarre connection, Andrew W.K. will be including locks of his unwashed hair, pieces of his filthiest, hard-partying jeans and even an autographed plane ticket left over from a trip he took from Prague to New York City. These goodies will be dispersed at random inside copies of the deluxe edition reissue of his 2001 album, 'I Get Wet.'
Those who grew up in the ‘80s remember the My Little Pony toys, and they are still being sold today. This September, a convention for fans of the TV show ‘My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic’ will be held in Ohio. However, if that doesn't excite you enough, party rocker Andrew W.K. will moderate a panel discussion ‘In the Flesh: What Would Pinkie Pie Do?’ at the Canterlot Gardens convention on Sept. 28.
