The Rockaway Times newspaper on “Gimme Gimme Rockaway”

http://rockawaytimes.com/index.php/news/3568-former-new-york-dolls-rocker-pens-rockaway-jam

 

A nice article from The Rockaway Times newspaper about how I came to write my latest single, “Gimme Gimme Rockaway”.

 

One thing that the article does not mention is that I told the interviewer about how when the Ramones wrote their homage to Rockaway Beach, that they were actually trying to spoof The Beach Boys, who sang about beautiful California beaches – knowing full well what a dump Rockaway beach was AT THAT TIME in the mid/late 1970s. But it’s beautiful now…and like Manhattan, I’m sure that means it has lost some of it’s character & sleaze in order to become a more family-friendly tourist destination 🙂

 

(PS – I have moved out of Manhattan after 30 years to Da Boogie Down Bronx…and I’m lovin’ it!)
