Would you listen to Punk Rock Blitzkrieg again? Why?
Yes. Great background into the history of Punk legends Ramones. Like any history story told well, there's typically more to glean on a second pass.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Punk Rock Blitzkrieg?
Realizing "End Of The Century" was Spectorized. I thought I knew my album history, but some how managed to miss the fact Phil Spector produced End of The Century. I stopped the book as soon as I learned this fact, and immediately listened to the album again, and heard the tracks with new ears. As a matter of fact, learning the stories behind many of the Ramones songs and Markey's previous bands was a huge distraction --- I found myself constantly switching from the book to my long punk playlist to listen to all the songs mentioned with a brand new appreciation. It was a very cool experience for a lifelong fan.
Have you listened to any of Corey M. Snow’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
This was my first listen with Mr. Snow. He did a great job of projecting Marky's tone and speech pattern. It's clear Mr. Snow "got in character" to deliver the narration, and it worked great.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
"Sedated" What else would you call it?
Any additional comments?
Was a clear reminder of to not pass up the opportunity catch your favorite bands when they are around -- there's no guarantee they'll pass by again.

A must listen for any Ramones fan! A true insiders look at the inner working of the machine called Ramones. A fun listen. Sad. Sweet. Raw. Upsetting. Triumphant. A great book about a great band, warts and all.
