Interview with fanclubfounders Christian and Jörg (in german language)
Because of a fortunate coincidence, since 1989 our quite little group of german
„Ramones-Followers“ were often behind, beside and on the stages, where the
Ramones played, presented with the best sight to their shows. We were at many
of their soundchecks, we talked with them. Sometimes we made sightseeing in the
towns, where the band had to play, bought souvenirs with them, were out with them for
dinner or lunch and sometimes (rare and only with individuals) out in the
nightlife after their show. Many more times we sat together in their hotel with
them, sometimes for hours, and talked. And once they were our guests for lunch
at the house of one of us. No reason to be conceited- it’s just the way it was
and it happened. We experienced the band as friendly, polite and really
pleasant private people, in no way arrogant, who had a lot of interesting
things to tell.
In early December 1993, whilst the band was on one of their european
tours, and only a couple of months before their 20th anniversary, Christian and
Jörg had the idea to release a special jubileefanzine, and also to do a
tributeevent, to celebrate and to show our respect to our favourite band. They
liked the idea from the beginning, and right then we were allowed to do all
this as an “official” thing, even later on.
As Johnny Ramone said, see above...
so we did it.
