Joey’s original “Chop Suey” lyrics
Chop Suey lyrics

Some of Joey Ramone’s leather wardrobe and some of his other personal belongings are hitting the auction block.

A custom-made black leather motorcycle jacket with zebra-skin pocket flaps, cuffs and epaulets is the star item in an online sale of the Queens-raised punk rocker’s belongings.

Also up for grabs are a pair of Joey’s leather pants and some of his leather accessories, including a leather belt that looks like it’s carrying ammo, a spiked wristband and fingerless gloves.

All the items come directly from family of the late Ramones frontman, said Bobby Livingston of Amherst, NH-based RR Auction — whose long-time employees still tell of when The Ramones stopped in to shop for autographs and rock memorabilia. – [NY Post]

All the Joey Ramone items up for auction will be on public display Thursday (2/7) a Bowery Electric from 5 – 7 PM. Entry is free though they will be taking donations for the Joey Ramone Foundation For Lymphoma Research. If you can’t make it down, you can check out all the memorabilia up for bid online. In attendance will be Joey’s brother, Mickey Leigh, and Punk Magazine founder John Holmstrom. The auction runs February 14 – 21.

Later Thursday night at Bowery Electric, you can see Wayne Kramer.
