I’m not sure how this one is going to work, but when one thing you love (The Ramones) collides with something you have generally positive feelings about (Andrew W.K.), it can’t be terrible, right? RIGHT?!? Andrew definitely respects the Ramones canon, at least, professing his love for the band on his website.
When Marky Ramone asks you to be his singer, you don’t even think about it. It’s an automatic, YES. I was intimidated by the magnitude of the opportunity – freaked out and overwhelmed – but I was also completely determined and focused – it’s something I had to do. Even just the first rehearsal felt like an odyssey, but that’s how you can tell the experience is changing your life. I’ve never had a more rewarding, humbling, or challenging invitation than this, and I’m serving the gods via this incredible sound Marky and his band created. There’s never been better rock ‘n’ roll music made than this, and I will give everything I have to do it justice.
They both look so sweetly optimistic on the video below. Please, for the sake of everyone involved, let this collaboration work!
