Lifestyles of the Ramones (video Review)
Review of the VHS video "Lifestyles of the Ramones" (1991)
Okay, while the Ramones lifestyles aren't very exciting, their music kicks booty. They just so happen to be my all-time favorite band, and I believe they were the greatest band in rock and roll history. More than just a punk rock band, they've done it all - hardcore punk, love songs, country style tunes, many a cover tune, and of course the blitzkrieg rock'n'roll they're most famous for.
This VHS video, "Lifestyles of the Ramones", includes 12 of their videos (the ones you never got to see on MTV) and a ton of interview footage with the band and their peers from New York City. Deborah Harry, members from the Talking Heads, Anthrax, Living Colour, Little Stephen, and various producers (Daniel Rey), radio deejays, and record executives share their insights into what it is that made the Ramones so darn cool.
Although the interview segments get a bit boring at times (especially after repeated viewings), it's the music videos themselves that make this a must have for Ramones fans. Here we have videos for the following Ramones classics - Do You Remember Rock'n'roll, Rock'n'roll High School, We Want the Airwaves, Psycho Therapy, and I Wanna Be Sedated, as well as some other excellent tunes including my personal favorites Pet Sematary, Something to Believe In, and Howling at the Moon. I Wanna Live, Merry Christmas, and I Believe in Miracles are also included. The video runs for 58 minutes, but I just wish they included a few more songs - even if they were just live footage.
Another thing I wish they had included in this video is interview clips with Dee Dee Ramone - the heart and soul of the band. Heck, even after he quit and was replaced by CJay, he still wrote most of their songs for them! I reckon Dee Dee would be a lot more interesting to interview than the rest of the band - I hear he was a bit on the schizophrenic side - but hey, this video is still a gem. I love the way the Ramones never changed their look - they wear the same black leather and sport the same bowl haircuts in each video - and Joey Ramone's speaking voice is funny as heck! I love it when he says, "It wasn't always peaches and cream" in that low, low Brooklyn voice of his.
If you love the Ramones the way I do, then you must get your hands on this video. I've had my copy for over fifteen years, and the darn thing is totally worn out 'cos I've played it so many times. I wish this was available on DVD, but VHS copies are still sold at amazon.com. It's hard to believe that Joey, Johnny, and Dee Dee are gone now, but "Lifestyles of the Ramones" is a must have for any true fan - - I give it three thumbs up!
