“For Christmas 1961, my parents bought me my first transistor radio… a whole new world opened up.”

During the past 45 years, beat-keeper Marky Ramone has had a seat in the downtown Manhattan birthing room of some of the world’s greatest rock and roll happenings. His newly published autobiography, “Punk Rock Blitzkrieg: My Life as A Ramone,” follows a linear path through the life of the Brooklyn-born drummer from his youngest years to the present day, and as the title suggests, pays considerable homage to his 15 years as a member of the Ramones.

Marky Ramone

Marky Ramone talks! Yes, that’s right, the longtime drummer for the Ramones and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee is headed to Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs at 7pm on Wednesday (March 26). He’ll be talking, however, not playing, and his appearance on campus at Palamountain Hall’s Gannett Auditorium is sponsored by the Skidmore Speakers Bureau.

What will be be talking about? Who knows? But his talk is open to the public, and it’s FREE, too.
