The Ramones were the hard-hitting New York punk band that erupted in nervy 1974 when a serial killer terrorised the city and civic bankruptcy loomed.
From their beginnings in Queens and the burgeoning punk scene at CBGB’s, through the excitement of their first album, a brush with Phil Spector and more than two thousand concerts over a 22 year period, The Ramones always were a force to be reckoned with.
This is their full story told in dramatic graphic style: the in-fighting, the deaths of three founding members, their influence on British bands like The Sex Pistols and The Clash, the induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and finally a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.
Gabba Gabba Hey: The Graphic Story of the Ramones has been created by author Jim McCarthy (Neverland, Tupac Shakur: Death Rap, Eminem: In My Skin, The Sex Pistols Graphic Novel, Godspeed: The Kurt Cobain Graphic and Voices Of Latin Rock) and artist Brian Williamson (Neverland, Dr Who, Torchwood, Primeval, 2000AD).
