Chelsea Horror Hotel
NY, Thunder's Mouth Press, (2001). A novel by one of the founding members of the legendary punk rock band The Ramones. Dee Dee was the bassist and chief songwriter for the band, and here writes a novel about moving into the Chelsea Hotel in New York, in the room where Sid Vicious killed his girlfriend Nancy. Dee Dee is tormented by the ghosts of his dead punk friends, and then the Devil joins in the fray. Signed by the author on June 16. No year given, but obviously signed in the year of publication: Dee Dee died of a heroin overdose prior to June 16 of the following year. Fine in wrappers. Scarce: items signed by any of the Ramones, especially Dee Dee, who had two books to his credit, are very uncommon in the marketplace. [#032903] SOLD
