LIFE'S A GAS: A TRIBUTE TO JOEY RAMONE

BACK

RELEASED: SEPTEMBER 10, 2001, BY AMP RECORDS (CANADA).

Liners notes on Life's A Gas: A Tribute To Joey Ramone are done by Joey's brother Mickey Leigh.

This really cool cover artwork is done by well known comic artist Darren Merinuk, with art submissions from Jim Campbell and photo by Maggie St. Thomas. First sketch for the CD was a drawing of all 4 Ramones, but AMP Records' Larry Retard decided to just have Joey on the cover. Darren Merinuk also finished the first drawing and it is included on my Joey Ramone memory book Heaven Needed A Lead Singer: Fans Remember Joey Ramone, not on this my website or any other places... Thanks Darren. Back cover photo of the album is by Maggie St.Thomas.

Old Ramoniac band called Fr‘bbblarnir from Iceland releases on this tribute album song called Heaven Needed A Lead Singer (they used this my generated title with my permission), it's beautiful song and lyrics are really touching...
Rat Fink play Johnny Ramone's guitar on their track.
