Monte A. Melnick traveled all over the world for over 22 years as tour manager (and much more) to the legendary Ramones. Monte could live anywhere, but he stayed in the place where it all began for him and the Ramones, Queens, New York. He has encountered many cultures around the world, perhaps that is why he has remained in Queens--one of the most ethnically diverse counties in the United States. On Episode 47 of Retire There with Gil & Gene, learn about Monte’s ride from the borough to touring the universe and back to Queens.
Monte A. Melnick’s informative and revealing book on the Ramones is On the Road with the Ramones, BONUS EDITION.
