The Ramones on Long Island

Aug 11th, 1979

Went out the Long Island to see the Ramones. I stayed at Geri's house so I could see the Ramones 3 nights in a row. How great is that, 3 nights of Johnny! I did not get to talk to Johnny at all but I think he noticed me from the stage. He did this wild & amazing movements with his guitar. I thought I would die. I got 3 guitar pics. He got all embaressed during Surfin Bird again when it was really quiet except for me screaming for him. He made this quiet motion with his finger. It was so cute. I kind of think of that as sort of our song. Oh Hail True Love.

So before the show, it was really scary because we drove past the house where they have the Amityville Horror movie. It was the real house that it happened in. I was even afraid to look at the house.
New design & great Christmas presents.

More David Johansen

Aug 9th, 1979

I went to see the David Johansen Band at the Fountain Casino. Ugh - was it ever an awful night. I spoke to Frankie LaRocka in the beginning of the night and he said he would give me his drumsticks which he never did. Tommy Trask did not give me 1 guitar pic. I only got a few that he knocked off his mic stand. The only time I think Tommy even acknowledged me wwas when they came out for an encore and he came out with a bottle of coke. So he looked for me and pretended he was going to pour it on my head. The show sucked anyway & it was a pretty short set. I should have gone to see the Ramones tonight instead. It was a toss up and I think I made the wrong choice. I'm thinking of not going to see the David Jo band anymore. God - I do this all the time. These 2 bit musicians aren't shit. I should just totally devote myself to David Bowie.

Onto the Ramones

Aug 5th, 1979

I went to see the Ramones the Fast Lane in Asbury Park NJ. It was so great since I was once again right up against the stage in front of Johnny Ramone. During Surfin Bird, when it gets really quiet, I always yell really loud for Johnny & I did & he smiled and laughed and gave me a guitar pic. So some kid grabbed it from me and Johnny gave me another one. Oh also, how great is this, Johnny dropped his guitar pic during the set and he did not have another one so I handed him the one he gave me and he used it. Then after the show we went into the dressing room and I actually got to talk to Johnny for awhile. It was so great. We talked about the movie & other stuff. It was pure heaven. God how I love Johnny.

And Still More Heartbreakers....

Aug 4th, 1979

I went to Max's again to see the Heartbreakers and I think probably for the last time I will ever see them. I know that I have said that before but I mean it this time. I am just getting so sick of them and Johnny's bullshit. Everyone is so convinced that Johnny Thunders is going to die soon. It seemed like he could barely stand up this time. All of the Blessed were there again. I spoke with Billy most of the night. I refused to say Hi to Howie but he finally came over to us. And he was so f'ing obnxious. But it was so strange to see him wearing the rosary beads I gave him around his wrist. I wonder if anyone ever asked him where he got his rosary beads from, if he would say where he got them. And guess what, the Blessed are recording on Wednesday and they might put out a single on Bomp records. God I can not wait. I will play that record to death.
