My Ramones: Photographs by Danny Fields

Text by Danny Fields, Michael Stipe, Seymour Stein, David Johansen.

My Ramones: Photographs by Danny Fields

“The Ramones knocked me over like an atomic wind.” —Danny Fields

Danny Fields first saw the Ramones play at CBGBs in New York in 1974, and instantly offered to manage them, also setting them up with a record deal. Originally published in a rare limited edition, My Ramones features more than 200 photographs from Danny’s personal collection of one of the most loved and well-known bands from the last four decades.

Danny managed the band from the ground up, accompanying them across Europe and America, while also photographing them at work with fans and during more informal moments. Taken between 1975 and 1977, Field’s photographs offer a rare insight into the lives of the band on tour, backstage and recording their first album. The images are further brought alive by his accompanying commentary and memories and recollections from Michael Stipe, Seymour Stein and David Johansen. This is a unique and special volume of a mythical time.

A legendary manager, publicist, journalist and label exec, Danny Fields (born 1941) was at the heart of every significant movement in rock music for two decades and was present for for the birth of punk in both America and the UK. He was a significant player in launching the careers of the Doors, the Ramones, the MC5, the Stooges and others, and was the ultimate scenester of the ‘60s and ‘70s, hanging out with Warhol, Nico, Linda McCartney, Edie Sedgwick, Alice Cooper and Lou Reed. In a recent documentary on his life, Danny Says, Alice Cooper remarked that he “seemed to be at the pulse of the underground, “ and Iggy Pop observed that “Danny’s a connector, he’s a fuel line, a place where things are liable to erupt.”

Danny Fields on 'His' Ramones

"When you start a band, one of your expectations, besides getting laid a lot, is that you're going to have your picture taken," former Ramones manager Danny Fields writes in My Ramones, his new photography collection from Reel Art Press. "When you actually do it, it's not that easy. Like all groups, the Ramones started out feeling awkward about being photographed. So they worked at it. They used their sessions with me, where they had some control and freedom, to learn how to be in front of a camera. I learned a lot too."
Fields will appear in conversation with Rolling Stone deputy photo editor Sacha Lecca Wednesday, April 4 at Spoonbill Studio in Bushwick, and with Please Kill Me author Gillian McCain Friday, April 6 at Rizzoli. continue to blog
