Richard Waserman

I remember meeting a guy named matt -- think his last name was Lolea or something. he said he had been a roadie with the Ramones. Met him and his wife Lora in jamaica. and we went back together a few times after that. Don't suppose you remember him or where he might be?
Thanks

On The Road With The Ramones

For the best book on the Ramones read,
"On The Road With The Ramones"
http://www.ontheroadwiththeramones.com

This is a MUST-HAVE book for all Ramones fans. It's an inside look from the people who were actually there witnessing and experiencing all the extreme highs and lows of one of rock's greatest bands. The Ramones' music has influenced nearly every power pop, punk, alternative, and metal band. Monte A. Melnick served as The Ramones tour manager from their early New York club days at CBGB's in the '70s to their farewell gigs in 1996. Filled with memorabilia including photographs and interviews collected along the way, this is his view of life on the road with the band as "baby-sitter to psychiatrist, booking agent to travel agent, paymaster to van driver." It's such a fascinating read, you'll have a hard time putting it down. Buy it, read it, and then revisit their albums. You'll never look at the Ramones in the same light.
