Hot on the heels of the Blondie 40th Anniversary exhibition comes another kickass display of rock’n’roll radness happening at the Chelsea Hotel Storefront Gallery (222 West 23rd Street) this month.

The Dee Dee Ramone exhibit kicks off today (December 10) and will run through January 1. Fans can check out a host of art, writings, and classic duds from the late, legendary Ramones bassist. Plus, Fender will preview a limited edition Dee Dee Ramone Signature Precision Bass Guitar and an exclusive scrapbook. Hey Ho, Let’s Go!

What makes this particular exhibit extra special is that it’s coming to NYC for the very first time. And the Chelsea Hotel is the perfect spot, as the famed landmark was one which Dee Dee frequented. This spot also served as the setting in his 2001 opus, Chelsea Horror Hotel: A Novel.

Additionally, photographs from Bob Gruen, Mick Rock, Blondie’s Chris Stein, Ed Perlstein, Stephanie Chernikowski, and Keith Green will be on hand, among others.

And then There’s this Apartment with a Tub in the Kitchen

The tub here made sense given […]
