Evie & Kitty visit from California

Aug 21st, 1979

I went into NYC to see Evie & Kitty. They are out here for a week visiting from California. Evie is so incredibly sweet. I know that Kitty is dying to meet Billy. So it was kind of funny because they invited Johnny Rao & Buzzy Verno from the Johansen Band up to the hotel room to meet them and when they came upstairs no one had anything to say. It was just so boring. We went to see "Rock n Roll High School" and we saw Arturo there. I found out that the Ramones are not going to Europe until January. I'm so happy they will be here for a few more months. We called up Billy Stark and asked him if he wanted to go to the movies with us but the Blessed were having a photo session. It was fun to talk to Billy. The hotel is ok - somewhere in the east 20's. We ordered in Indian food from across the street and delivered it to the hotel room. I didn't stay over since I want to see the David Johansen band tomorrow night in Asbury Park.

Meet Joon

Aug 18th, 1979

I went to Club 57 to see The Cramps and all of these horrible bands. It was so wild because Joon went on stage with Lux from The Cramps. After the show she was talking to him. & it looked so cute. I think they make such a good couple. No one from the Blessed was there because they were recording. Danny, one of the roadies from The Ramones was there. He said he got the letter I sent to Johnny Ramone and he was going to give it to him. He better. Anyway - these people I know saw Johnny in some pizza parlor before the show. One day I want to go and hang out by his apartment building just to see him before he goes to England. Johnny Ramone forever, Oh Hail True Love.

Wayne County at Max's

August 17th, 1979

Went to see Wayne County and the Voodoo Shoes at Max's. I had a pretty good time. Everyone from the Blessed was there. I spoke to Billy most of the night. He seemed kind of depressed. Wayne who is now Jane was so weird to watch on stage.

More David Johansen (although I said no more)

Aug 16th, 1979

My new Top 10 List
  1. David Bowie
  2. Debbie Harry
  3. Iggy Pop
  4. Clem Burke
  5. Johnny Ramone
  6. Matt the Roadie
  7. Billy Stark
  8. Howie Pyro
  9. Tommy Trask
  10. Brad Barnett
I went to see the David Johansen Band at Creation although I swore I would never go back and see them again. It was a pretty decent night considering I was not expecting too much. Tommy had no guitar pics to play at one point during the show so I gave him one of mine. Then he gave it back to me after the show and thanked me for the guitar pic. Bernie the roading is so nice. I am going to ask him to send me postcards from Europe. I must say that the Johansen Band and the Ramones have the best roadies.
