The “entertaining and enlightening” (Stephen King) final word on the genius and mischief of the Ramones, told by the man who created the beat behind their iconic music and lived to tell about it. When punk rock reared its spiky head in the early seventies, Marc Bell had the best seat in the house. Already a young veteran of the prototype American metal band Dust, Bell took residence in artistic, seedy Lower Manhattan, where he played drums in bands that would shape rock music for decades to come, including Wayne County, who pioneered transsexual rock, and Richard Hell and the Voidoids, who directly inspired the entire early British punk scene. If punk had royalty, in 1978 Marc became part of it when he was knighted “Marky Ramone” by Johnny, Joey, and Dee Dee of the iconoclastic Ramones. The band of tough misfits were a natural fit for Marky, who dressed punk before there was punk, and who brought his “blitzkrieg” style of drumming as well as the studio and stage experience the band needed to solidify its lineup. Together, they changed the world. But Marky Ramone changed, too. The epic wear and tear of a dysfunctional group (and the Ramones were a step beyond dysfunction) endlessly crisscrossing the country and the world in an Econoline—practically a psychiatric ward on wheels—drove Marky from partying to alcoholism. When his life started to look more out of control then Dee Dee’s, he knew he had a problem. Marky left music in the mid-eighties to enter recovery and eventually returned to help the Ramones finally receive their due as one of the greatest and most influential bands of all time. Covering in unflinching detail the cult film Rock ’N’ Roll High School to “I Wanna Be Sedated” to Marky’s own struggles, Punk Rock Blitzkrieg is an authentic and always honest look at the people who reinvented rock music, and not a moment too soon.

Punk rock ethics and philosophy are to question everything, do not except things just because you are told to do so, but instead learn about them yourself so that YOU can make your own decisions. And contrary to popular belief Punk is not about being lazy, it's about D.I.Y. (Do It Yourself). It's about not conforming to the norm! Punk rock also has a very freestyle spirit, it’s about being different, distinct, not like everybody else! This is what originally attracted me to Punk rock and later the Gothic rock movement. Being L.D.S. (Latter-day Saint) is also about questioning everything, up to and including our eternal heavenly father. It’s about not being what the world expects you to be. But instead standing up for what is right and not ignoring what is wrong! And through the course of this, being different and distinct is a way of life in the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. If this is not Punk Rock, I don’t know what is? This is my story that has taken me from Catholicism to Mormonism, from Paganism to Buddhism and from crazy punk rock insanity to dark, morbid, gothic rock death & gloom. Then on to Pentecostal/Evangelical Christianity and finally back to just me and my personal relationship with Jesus Christ. It’s a story about searching for answers, especially the age, old questions of: who are we? Where do we come from? And where do we go after we die? It’s about trusting our heavenly father and realizing that Jesus Christ really loves us and deeply cares about our well being both temporal and spiritual. Most importantly it’s about developing a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, he is here for us no matter what we do and wants us to be happy and for this reason died for us, so that we could be set free. To give us a chance to be happy, to be with him...
