Some amazing, mostly-unseen photos of the Ramones have surfaced thanks to the band’s 70s-era manager, Danny Fields, and his new book, My Ramones.
The Guardian reports: The Ramones’ manager: ‘They were outcasts, outsiders. The smartest people I ever knew’
“I met them outside CBGB and Tommy said: ‘Will you write something about us?’ I said, ‘I want to manage you.’ They knew who I was, because they met through loving the Stooges and I had signed the Stooges to Elektra. They said: ‘A lot of people want to be our manager, so if you give us $3,000 for equipment it could be you.’“
