Gabba Gabba Hey

March 25th, 1979
Went to see the Ramones & Shrapnel at the Fast Lane in Asbury Park. I am so in love again and I mean really in love. This time with Johnny Ramone. Oh God he is so cute. He even threw me some of his guitar pics. I wound up with 2 of them. Dee Dee is really cute also but no one in the Ramones compares with Johnny. I think Joey has something wrong with him. Me & Marie were the first ones on line so we were right up close against the stage. I now want to follow the Ramones everywhere. I can't wait to see them again and stand in front of Johnny.

Venturing out after the accident

March 24th, 1979
I finally went out again. I feel so much better but for the first week I never felt so awful. I never left my bed and slept almost all the time. Jo ann came over to visit. I feel pretty much back to my old self again except I am wearing an eye patch and I am still missing my teeth. But I went to the dentist and that is getting fixed.

So we went to see the David Johansen Band at Emmit's. It is only about 30 minutes so I did not have to venture into NYC. It was a really good night. Buzzy Verno got so drunk that he could not even play with the band so Peter the tour manager had to take his place. So needless to say, the set was really short. I spoke with Bernie the roadie alittle bit. Frankie LaRocka had a lot of sympathy for me with my car accident and so did Tommy Trask. Frankie said he considers Marie & I friends and not fans. I got alot of guitar pics from Tommy. He is definetly one of my favorite rock stars. It was so good to go out and see a band again. I think I was having withdrawals.

I also went to Woodbridge Center and for a few new singles, one of which is the new Voidoids single. It is so good.

My Car Accident

March 11th, 1979
I went to see the Dead Boys at CBGB's. It was great. I saw Howie & Billy from the Blessed there. Only thing, got into a car accident. Mary Ellen was driving and she fell asleep behind the wheel. I lost my 2 front teeth and got 50 stitches above my eye. I am lucky I was not killed. If I was in the front seat, I would have gone through the windshield. But I was sleeping and laying down in the back seat so I was cushioned during the impact. I will be out of college for a few weeks I think and definetly will not be able to go see any bands for a little while. It actually happaned March 12th 6:10am.

Changes to the Voidoids

March 10th, 1979
I went to see the Fast at Max's. It was a really hot night. Jerry Nolan was walking around all depressed all night. Joann offered him a joint but he said no. Billy Stark was there from the Blessed. So we talked about the Blessed all night. And now for the shock. Xcessive joined the Voidoids. Jerry was fired. Isn't that so weird. So X told me the words to my fave Richard Hell song in the world, " I lie here staring in her eyes." Joann found out such hot gossip and I found out so much dish on Debby Harry & David Bowie. It was confirmed that Bowie is in NY now and he was at the Ramones party the other night. And also confirmed that Debby Harry was there. I just have to find Bowie this week in NY.

The Mumps

March 4th, 1979
Went to Max's to see The Mumps. They got so much better. Billy Stark was there so I talked to him for a really long time about The Blessed. It was really good. I heard last night that David Bowie, Debby Harry, & Chris Stein were all at Hurrah's and then they went to the Mudd Club for a party for the Ramones. I wish I had been there. David Bowie is back in NYC. I have to find him.

More David Jo Shows...

March 2nd, 1979
I went to see the David Johansen Band again in Long Island. What a hike to get there. I had a really good time. I do not like the roadie anymore. Tommy Trask was also really nice. He dropped a guitar pic in my lap during the song "Girls". He came up to me at the end of the show and we talked a little. I went to the show with Marie. Everyone is so in love with her. She is so beautiful.
