Tommy And The Rockets. I Wanna Be Covered has nine Ramones covers.
- I am not so interested anymore to publish records that has covers. But
Tommy And The Rockets has good and different style and songs are not too
self-evident of the Ramones songs. Like there is no Blitzkrieg Bop.
Tommy Stubgaard has been fan of the Ramones since he was 10 years old
and he is born in the same day when was published first Ramones album,
wrote me Hannu Jokinen of Woimasointu Records.
