Gabba Gabba Hey my fellow Ramones maniacs or dare I say “Ramoniacs” LOL. Welcome back to my full on presentation of the Queens Museum exhibit of “Hey! Ho! Let’s Go: Ramones and the Birth Of Punk” which will run until 7/31/2016 – I’m picking up where I left off in the last installment and much like that one there are a LOT of photos to share with you. I’ll be chiming in here and there as I need to so crank up the tunes and get thee enjoying this legendary bands artifacts.
This part of the wall had numerous LP editions of the Ramones body of work. I have the first six pictured on vinyl still but I never owned the rest in this medium. Many of those I do have on CD. How many do you have?
Vintage “Rock Scene” magazines. This was a great one for sure. Especially when it focused on the NYC bands.
Here’s a bunch of handwritten lyrics and notations by members of the band.
I’m now in the second room of the exhibit which had instruments and stage clothes on one whole side of the room. I’ll be breaking the images up a little closer for good measure.
Here’s a wall of stage riders and identification paperwork that would be used to access gigs.
I’m a big fan of laminates as many of my friends in bands know and I try to get one whenever someone I know comes into town for a tour to have in my own personal collection. It was great to see all of these Ramones laminated badges in one place. Talk about the shows that they come from.
This wall had a lot of European tour posters. I would do my best to get as many close ups as possible but some were up rather high so.
Have you had enough or do you want some more? I know you said that you are hankering for the next and final installment so I am going to hit the Mudd Club with Sheena and Ramona and get back to the presentation once I wake up. Feel free to see if that leather jacket in your closet still fits and check the tuning on your air guitar to the strains of “Leave Home”. If you want to see some slightly different images from this exhibit on the Official Instagram of our outlet they can be found right HERE.
