Fender® to Preview Dee Dee Ramone Limited Edition
Signature Precision Bass® Guitar + Accompanying Exclusive Scrapbook

_________________________

The Dee Dee Ramone Exhibition will be held in Dee Dee’s home turf of NYC for the first time ever at the Hotel Chelsea Storefront Gallery (222 West 23rd Street), from December 10th, 2014 – January 1st, 2015. The launch of this exhibit will offer a preview of the soon-to-be-released Fender® Dee Dee Ramone Limited Edition Signature Precision Bass® guitar, a tool used by the enigmatic Ramone to leave his indelible fingerprint on rock history for generations to come.

This historic exhibition sanctioned by the rock legends’ own estate, will celebrate all of the facets of Dee Dee’s long-lasting artistic legacy: a founding member of the Ramones, one of the most influential punk-rock bassists and primary, prolific songwriter of world-famous group, as well as his work in the visual arts – proving that Dee Dee, who began painting more seriously in 1996, was an artist in every sense of the word. The breadth of Dee Dee’s art and achievements is so wide that one of his paintings, to be featured in the exhibit, was recently showcased in a question on America’s favorite quiz show Jeopardy.

Additionally, what makes this exhibition so incredibly unique is Dee Dee’s history with the iconic Hotel Chelsea, which is not only a place he frequented, and at times lived in, but was also the setting for his 2001 novel Chelsea Horror Hotel: A Novel, as well as the focus of many works of art which will be on display in the exhibition. The legendary Hotel Chelsea has been home to generations of writers, artists, musicians, and bohemians and Chelsea Hotels is continuing the dedication to its history and support of the arts through this exhibition.

In addition to featuring Dee Dee’s original art, wardrobe, memorabilia and rare artifacts, the Dee Dee Ramone exhibition will also include iconic photographs by world-famous photographers including Bob Gruen, Mick Rock, Chris Stein (Blondie), Ed Perlstein, Stephanie Chernikowski, Keith Green, Jenny Lens, Stanley Ryan Jones, Jimmy Steinfeldt and more TBA.

Previous exhibits of Dee Dee’s work have been held at La Luz De Jesus and famed street artist Shepard Fairey’s Subliminal Projects galleries in Los Angeles, and is now being presented in New York for the first time.

The exhibition will be open to the public from 1pm to 8pm every day, 7 days a week, starting Dec. 10, 2014 thru Jan. 1, 2015. Holiday hours will be in effect with an early closing on Christmas Eve, closed all of Christmas day, and early closing on New Years Eve. ADMISSION IS FREE! DO NOT MISS IT!!

On This Day In METAL History – November 12th – From “Creepshow” To Queen

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, horror, music news, Punk rock, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on November 12, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Queen - Somebody To Love - promo single sleeve pic - #1976FM

On November 12th, 1976Queen released Somebody to Love, the first single off of their fifth studio album: A Day at the Races. The song would reach #2 on the U.K. Singles Chart and #13 on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart in America. Above photo: cover sleeve artwork for the 7″ single/45 rpm.

The Sex Pistols - Never Mind The Bollocks - promo cover pic - #1977SV

On this day in 1977 – With their debut album Never Mind the Bollocks, Here’s The Sex Pistols, The Sex Pistols reached #1 on the U.K. Albums Chart for the first and only time. As the only studio album ever released by this legendary band, its influence on Heavy Metal became evident in later years, with Motörhead and Anthrax covering God Save The Queen and Megadeth covering Anarchy In The UK.

Creepshow - promo movie poster - November - 12 - 1982 - #667SK

On November 12th, 1982 – The Horror/Dark Comedy film, Creepshow, was released in U.S. theaters. With a brilliant screenplay by Stephen King and legendary directing from George A. Romero, Creepshow has earned status as a timeless Horror classic, in my Metal opinion. Creepshow consists of five short stories; each a gem in their own right.

Creepshow featured some famously talented actors of the day: Hal HolbrookAdrienne Barbeau, Fritz Weaver, (the late) Leslie Nielsen, (the late) Carrie Nye, (the late) E. G. Marshall and of course, Ted Danson of Cheers fame. Stephen King is also the only actor, in one of the five short stories: The Lonesome Death of Jordy Verrill. Trust me, Stephen King puts on a grand performance, giving his Jordy Verrill character both a hilarious and somber persona. I highly recommend Creepshow to all who love Horror and Dark Comedy.

Man, I remember going to the theater to see this film with a cool Metal buddy named Jaime, back in 1982; our walk back home was at night, thus we were spooked pretty damn good! I just rented Creepshow a couple of weeks ago and watched it with my wife and daughter; it was their first time watching this movie and they were super-spooked by it all! Good times. Creepshow is… Metal!

EXPANDED EDITION CD

Misfits - Project 1950 - expanded edition LP - promo cover pic

EXPANDED EDITION LP

The Misfits special project showcasing punk covers of 1950’s era rock ‘n’ roll classics assembles an all-star line-up to bring this creature to life! Misfits founding member Jerry Only frontlines the spiked jukebox on Bass and lead vocals for every track—along with Black Flag alum Dez Cadena utilizing an arsenal of guitars to achieve a dynamic that best suits each song, and much more…

60’s pop-rock icon Ronnie Spector (known for timeless classics like “Be My Baby” and “Baby I love You”) makes a special guest appearance lending her inimitable vocals to “This Magic Moment” and “You Belong to Me”. The expertise of Jimmy Destri (Blondie) shines on keyboards for re-workings of “Runaway” & “Great Balls of Fire”. Also featured is longtime Misfits & Ramones collaborator John Cafiero (Osaka Popstar) contributing melodic punk-pop backing vocals to “Dream Lover”, “Monster Mash” and “Runaway”. Ed Manion (of Bruce Springsteen’s E Street band) who has performed with a wide variety of artists—including 50’s icon Dion, provides saxophone for “Diana” and “Runaway”. The gamut of 50’s era music has been reinterpreted along with a couple of 60’s era hits that were must haves for this theme driven collection.

Notably the highest charting release in the band’s entire legacy, “Project 1950″ is presented in an all-new expanded edition featuring three never-before released bonus tracks with Misfits drummer Eric “Chupacabra” Arce rounding out the lineup. All three songs have an underlying horror-centric common thread, and are newly recorded exclusively for this release!

A monster lurking in the mind of Jerry Only for years is unleashed as Misfits Records presents “Project 1950″.

CD in stores October 27th with all-new bonus tracks, newly expanded packaging art by Tony Squindo (Metallica), free poster, and extensive liner notes.

Look for the vinyl LP edition coming in November pressed on 180-gram Ltd Ed vinyl with exclusive variant cover art by Tom Whalen (Mondo), retro-style jacket, plus first pressing on fluorescent yellow colored vinyl—while supplies last.
