MORRISSEY CURATES THE RAMONES (2014)

In Friday November 28, 2014, was published two Ramones specials in Record Store Day's Black Friday. These:
1) Joey Ramone: Christmas Spirit... In My House 10' vinyl. Label: Sanctuary. RSD Exclusive Release.
and 2) this the Ramones compilation titled Morrissey Curates The Ramones. 12' vinyl by Rhino/Sire / RSD Exclusive Release.
Details: "Morrissey, being a big Ramones fan, particularly of the early years, had always wanted to compile a "best of" album and this year he got his wish. This compilation reflects Morrissey's experience of listening to the band for the first time. With the sad passing of Tommy Ramone recently, both management and Morrissey felt this was a fitting tribute. The use of the Union Jack on the cover reflects both how important the band were to the UK music scene but also how the UK embraced them and their sound. The photo on the back cover by Danny Fitzgerald is evocative of the period and was selected by Morrissey."
Morrissey has said he is thankful to the Ramones management for this invitation. Morrissey is a British solo artist who has been creating his succesful solo career already since 1988. Some might be confused why Morrissey, but I (Jari-Pekka) want to explain of his background. Morrissey has spoke of Joey Ramone, Johnny Ramone and Dee Dee Ramone in his some speeches at the shows. Morrissey's single Something Is Squeezing My Skull (2009) has cool covers taken in a statue in memory of Johnny Ramone.
Few years ago was told in public of negative comments Morrissey had written of the Ramones in 1976. He explained that old writing in 2012: "When I bought the Ramones first album on import, I was enraged with jealousy because I felt they had booted the New York Dolls off the map. I was 100% wrong. Three days after writing that Ramones piece, I realized that my love for the Ramones would out-live time itself. And it shall.", wrote Morrissey.

So as a teenager Morrissey acted as president of the UK branch of the New York Dolls fan club, and later he founded The Cramps fan club, the Legion Of The Cramped. Morrissey was for a while in the punk rock band The Nosebleeds in the late 1970's, then he became famous as a singer of The Smiths, before going to solo career. I also want to mention, Morrissey has been vegetarian since he was 11 years old and is an advocate for animal rights and a supporter of People For The Ethical Treatment Of Animals (PETA).
