they seem like pretty common records he must have punk rarities that are far more interesting

Any I'd want to bid on, I already have.
And so they were Joey's?
Yeah... a COA that won't do me any good.

Somewhat CSB...
I live near where The Great Raguso lived...
(If you don't know who I'm talking about, get the fark off my lawn)
When he moved, there was a garage sale.
I didn't know whose house it was, until I went to pay for a Budweiser coffee cup.
All of 25 cents.
Well, the coont lawyer sitting there says "You can't leave without this letter stating that this was his coffee cup!"
I'm like, "What The fark? What am I going to do with this letter? Lady, the cup is going on my desk to hold pens. I don't care if Laverne squeezed her breast milk into it, I don't need the letter."
I ripped the letter up and dropped it on the porch.
fark Lawyers and fark The Great Raguso in his greasy ass.

derpy: Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers (Official Live 'Leg)


That one was only available in a recent Tom Petty box set that had a DVD, 5 CD's, 1 record, a lot of filler, and something else.
Joey Ramone may have really liked Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.

The list makes me think he's been picking up albums at thrift shops for twenty years. The exceptions would be those pertaining the bands or members of The Who (Entwhistle), Slade, T. Rex, The Doors (Manzarek), Rod Stewart, Elton John, and a few other plural holdings.  Either that, or it was two-for-one day.
I'm a little surprised not to see any David Bowie.

Hugo Zorilla: Any I'd want to bid on, I already have


I think you get the pleasure of owning one person's entire collection.
Which is around 1.5 milk crates.
But you go and try and snake that Rod Stewart right on out of there.
 
2013-02-08 08:00:04 AM  
He used to go to Bleeker Bobs a lot.
And I'd think he had more records than just those listed.

Eh...
Once Rod got his stomach pumped, he changed...

It probably wasn't before the family and close friends went through it and took what they wanted.

Were you expecting hundreds of one-off pressings of punk bands on 45s?

I suppose the rest of the collection will be up for sale in the future. With the vinyl revival happening now i'm surprised we don't see more of these auctions.

The Ramones grew up and went to school a few blocks from me. But Forest Hills is so boring, they had to say they were from Long Island City to make it seem like they were tough street kids.

I'd like to buy those sunglasses so that I could be *puts on sunglasses* your Joey Ramone. YEAAAHH YEAHH YEAHH YEAHH

Don't be bashin' on Neil now. "Love Will Keep Us Together" might be the quintessential '70s slab of 3:30 magic.

The vinyl revival is something that has been talked about for years.  I don't think it's going to happen.

The Ramones were my first love

On a somewhat related note, Marky Ramone now has his own brand of spaghetti sauce. I bought some yesterday, haven't tried it yet.

Wow, that's an incredibly unremarkable and small collection.  Good stuff, but I thought someone with a reasonably long run in the industry would have quite an extensive collection simply by people giving him stuff if nothing else.  Meh, would not bid.
