Surviving Ramones drummer Marky Ramone and Andrew W.K. are currently touring the country together, performing over 30 hits from the seminal New York punk outfit’s catalogue. Ramone recruited Andrew to serve as the new lead singer of Blitzkrieg, because, as Ramone explained, “these songs are too good not to be played live!”
Prior to their performance at Chicago’s Double Door, we sat down with Ramone and Andrew for a brief chat. Watch as they discuss Andrew’s participation in the tour, whether they think the punk-rock genre is dead, and Marky offers up his thoughts on the forthcoming CBGBs biopic.
