Joey Ramone’s possessions go up for auction – records, t-shirts…even his passport
Want to pass yourself off as Joey Ramone? Well, thanks to his brother, you can do that if you have a few quid to spare at auction.
Joey’s brother Mickey has put up for auction a pile of stuff. And we’re talking a big pile – a leather jacket, endless amounts of t-shirts, a couple of guitars, leather belts, badges, handwritten lyrics, awards, even the man’s passport. It’s a Ramones’ fan’s dream.
The album collection is making all the waves though. 97 albums (rather than singles), some of which you would expect, a good few perhaps not.
