More Ramones etc...

Oct 4th, 1979
Called Billy again.

Oct 6th, 1979
Went into NYC to see "Ladies and Gentlemen , the Rolling Stones.

Oct 8th, 1979
I went to see the Ramones at Queens College. It was a great show. It was Johnny Ramone's birthday. I met some girl Jillian who told me she's been friends with David Bowie since 1971. I wonder if its true. If so, I am so completely jealous.

After the show, we waited outside for the Ramones to come out. I said Happy Birthday to Johnny and I told him I did not get any guitar pics at that show so he gave me one. He is so nice. Gerry & I found out for sure that we are subletting the loft where Joey Ramone and Arturo live while the Ramones go on tour. Can't wait.

J.T.'s Gangwar

Oct 1st, 1979

Went to see Johnny Thunder's Gangwar at the Fast Lane in Asbury Park NJ. Another band for Johnny. They were ok but they did nothing off of L.A.M.F. They did some good covers though. I could not believe that they did "You can't put your arms around a memory". God I love that song. I never saw Johnny do that live so that alone was worth going for. They Heartbreakers would never play it live because supposedly Jerry did not want to. I still like it when Johnny & Walter Lure play together. That will always be the best combination.
