40 YEARS AGO, PHIL SPECTOR MADE THE RAMONES A LEGEND AND DESTROYED THE BAND

Four Chords and a Gun written by actor John Ross Bowie (The Big Bang Theory, Speechless) reveals the drama filled 1979 recording session that led to The Ramones album, End of the Century, produced by Phil Spector.

Based on Bowie’s exhaustive research, the script delves into the personal tensions between the punk band members as well as their often violent struggles with Spector. It’s a powerful story both funny and touching which explores the Ramones, Linda Daniele (the woman who loved two of them) and the charismatic, destructive Spector.

Hey Ho Let’s Go! to a play about the Ramones followed by a concert. Not a f***ing musical.
