Letter from Mike Dirnt:

Friends today is a sad, but proud day in the history of (punk) rock-n-roll and our lives. I woke up this morning to find that Joey Ramone had passed on Easter Sunday 2001. Ironically religion gets its Icon back and American punk culture loses theirs. I think an end of an era has come and I've never felt as old as I do right now. I remember in junior high when I heard the Ramones at a party or a skate park I knew that I was at the place to be. Right now I am listening to the Ramones Anthology. The songs mean a lot more to me today and alot of other bands mean so much less. Thanks always comes a day late and a dollar short but my respect has and will always be there for the band that showed me that simple songs and a simple life could make you happy. "Here today and Gone Tomorrow" Thank you to all of our Ramones for everything and Hail to the Chief. Oh yeah!! and the kid in the Ramones tshirt will always be cool....
GABBA GABBA HEY

April 15th, 2001 - Update By Brian (frustrators@aol.com) -

Green Day wrapped up shooting on their music video for the new single, "Waiting" last night in the West Adams district of Los Angeles. Shooting took place mostly in a house-turned set in a residential neighborhood across from the First AME Church. You can catch Mike Dirnt and his freshly bleached blonde hair along with Billie Joe and Tre in the new video, which will debut on MTV in a few weeks. Stay tuned for details!

Check out this review of "Warning" by Lawrence Livermore:here.

Punk Rocker Joey Ramone Passes Away at 48 :here."Their ``do-it-yourself,'' garage-rock influence still echoes today in bands like Green Day and the Offspring. The low-tech Ramones spent just two days and $6,000 recording their 1976 debut album."

April 13th, 2001 - Update By Brian (frustrators@aol.com) -

Green Day's performance of "Blood, Sex, and Booze" will air on MadTV 4/28.
