A.D. The Bible Continues starts with the Crucifixion and The Resurrection –catalysts that altered history. What follows is the epic tale of “A.D.” chronicling several of the most intense and tumultuous decades in history. The complicated birth of the early Church was a time filled with enormous faith, persecution, political intrigue, brutal Roman oppression and the desperate Jewish revolt. The entire world was transformed, and the course of human history would be forever changed.

Faster than you can say: ‘Hey! Ho! Let’s go!,’ self-taught drummer Marky Ramone continues to rock out his legacy as the last member of the most iconic punk bands in history.  In his book, Punk Rock Blitzkrieg: My Life as a Ramone, Marky gives an account of the punk scene in the 1970s, a look at The Ramones neuroses, dysfunctions and overcoming alcoholism.

Before joining the band, Marc Bell, was signed to record deal just out of high school. Hanging out with legends like Jimmy Hendricks, Marky was entrenched in the punk rock social scene. In 1978 Marky joined the Ramones and lead singer, Joey, and well, it was history in the making.

There have been many books written on the band, but not from a Ramone, so now was a good time. “The band member is in the inner circle more than anyone else,” he said. “So I figured after reading all the other books I wanted to quell some rumors and tell my own story, and how things went through my observation.”

This story includes Joey and his OCD, Marky driving his car into a storefront window, and later during his sobriety becoming a bike messenger after leaving the band in 1983. The book also will talk about Dee Dee, who was given the book, Pet Cemetery by author Stephen King, and within an hour, the song Pet Cemetery was born.

Having Rich Herschlag help write the book was equally important.

“There has to be a flow to the book,” Marky said. “You have to make sure everything is accurate and you have to have somebody with you who can make you sound like you in the book while you’re reading it.”

Marky was given sage advice from his father on the people we would talk about.

“If you’re going to tell and talk about other people, you better be twice as blunt about yourself. That’s why I wrote about my rehab, my situation with alcohol and how I beat it, and how I was in the band twice.”

The native from Brooklyn is in his 10th year as a D.J. on Sirius XM, tours, and in 2011 The Ramones  were recognized as punk pioneers, receiving the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2011.
