When the Ramones recorded their debut album in 1976, it heralded the true birth of punk rock. Unforgettable front man Joey Ramone gave voice to the disaffected youth of the seventies and eighties, and the band influenced the counterculture for decades to come.

While the music lives on for new generations to discover, andlt;Iandgt;I Slept with Joey Ramone andlt;/Iandgt;is the enduring portrait of a man who struggled to find his voice and of the brother who loved him.
