RAMONES: 'Raw' DVD Certifield Gold

The RAMONES "Raw" DVD (Image Entertainment) has been certified gold — the group's first DVD or video release to ever to achieve this honor. "We are all extremely happy, and we hope all the RAMONES fans are happy about this, too," Marky Ramone said in a statement posted on the band's web site. "If it wasn't for them, this wouldn't have happened. This would've made Joey, Dee Dee and Johnny very proud. In a few weeks we will post the awards. Also, I will be playing in Germany and Italy next week and the week after, check your local listings.

"The guitar that was up for auction (that Miss Destri and myself designed and painted) was the number one seller that day — we are very happy that it went to a wonderful cause called the United Way, which helps a lot of people. Hope to see all RAMONES fans at the Limelight (now called the Avalon) in New York City on Dec. 17th. With Dez Cadena from BLACK FLAG, and Jerry Only from the MISFITS. Hey ho let's go. I'm keeping it alive as long as I can still play."
