  7. A Martin Scorsese film about the Ramones is in the works

    With the recent passing of drummer Tommy Ramone, plans are in the works for a multitude of Ramones-themed projects over the next few years. Among them are a theatrical play, documentary, book, and reissues. Jeff Jampol, who manages the Ramones’ estate, recently told Billboard:

    "The 40th anniversary of the Ramones is coming up in 2016, that’s when the first album came out. So we have a lot of projects leading up to that. We’re looking at a documentary on the Ramones, we just secured a ton of footage, much of which has never been seen before. It came from the Ramones on the road over the years in the Seventies and a little bit in the Eighties."
    He goes on to add:
    "You’ll see a book coming, which is not a biographical book so much, but a story of the band’s formation and those first few records and that craziness that happened. It’ll be a combination of prose, photographs and memorabilia and posters, just kind of documenting the scene. The Ramones were the first punk band and they started the punk movement."
    In addition, it has also been revealed that a feature film is in the planning stages about the iconic band, with Martin Scorsese at the helm. Regarding the film, Jampol said:
    "We’re all gonna focus on the Ramones, and it’s that whole thing of, ‘United we stand, divided we fall.’ The legacy is the Ramones, the music is the Ramones, it was the four of them-it was Johnny, Joey, Dee Dee and Tommy, and everybody is cooperating and moving in one direction together as a team."
    The unnamed project still has no writer or cast attached to it, and one can only speculate as to the which of the Scorsese regulars will make an appearance. Leo DiCaprio in leather and bowlcut as Dee Dee Ramone?

  8. In Memoriam: Tim “Rawbiz” Williams (Suicidal Tendencies)

    Tim “Rawbiz” Williams, bassist of Suicidal Tendencies, has died. The long-running band released a statement on their Facebook page.

    "It’s with complete sadness that we have to announce the passing of bassists Tim "Rawbiz" Williams. Tim played bass for Suicidal Tendencies for almost four years until recently. Tim was a monster on bass, running around on stage in the pit, giving his all, even when his body wasn’t at it’s best. We will always remember him and appreciate all the kind words by those that were touched by his bass playing and him personally."
    Williams joined the band in 2011. Previously he had worked with other artists such as Toni Braxton and Boys II Men, as well as appearing on the 2009 series “Making the Band,” which followed producer/artist Diddy as he searched for members of his backing band.

    Our condolences to his family and friends.

  10. Bruce Springsteen plans to release graphic novel

    Bruce Springsteen Bruce Springsteen is working on releasing a graphic novel. The comic will be based on the Boss’ 2009 song “Outlaw Pete” which was based off the children’s book, Brave Cowboy Bill.

    The comic is out November 4 and features words by Springsteen and illustrations by Frank Caruso. (It’s not clear if “words by” means Springsteen provided the book’s text or not.) In a release, the pair stated that the book is “based on the celebrated song about a bank-robbing baby whose exploits become a meditation on sin, fate, and free will.”

    Bruce Springsteen released High Hopes earlier this year.
