Why, on a Ramones related show do I have the Allman Brothers song “‘Ramblin’ Man” going through my head? On Episode 14 of Love That Album, the one and only Doctor Zom of Silva and Gold podcast returns to discuss the Alan Arkush / Roger Corman rocksploitation film “Rock and Roll High School” featuring The Ramones in Oscar-worthy performances, as well as their Phil Spector produced album of the same period, “End of the Century”. In true Silva and Gold fashion, there were many detours from the proscribed subject matter (it felt like the end of the 21st century by the time we finished). This is the longest LTA episode yet, but we had to discuss such fundamental issues as how right wing Johnny Ramone and left wing Joey Ramones could stay in the same group for that many years. If Reagan and Bush didn’t split them, girlfriend theft surely should have….but the Ramones were made of sturdier stuff. Zom and I explore all avenues….oh and we sing Rock and Roll High School in harmony – across time zones yet!!!!
