[Killer Quotes #47: Jello Biafra]

by lkrory21
"And out come these four, kinda degenerate looking guys in leather jackets -- which is something you didn't see very often then. One chord on Jonny's guitar, and we knew it was going to be a louder than anyone of us were prepared for. We braced ourselves and instead of being goofy, the Ramones were one of the most powerful experiences of my entire life. 

We were three feet from the stage and forced to sit down, of course. Not only were they really, really good, but half the fun was turning around and watching the Ebbets Field, country-rock glitterati, the guys with the neatly trimmed beards, Kenny Loggins-feathered hair and corduroy jackets, with patches on the elbows, as well as the cocaine cowboys and their women, with their 1920s suits with flowers, because that's what Joni Mitchell was wearing at the time -- they looked horrified. 

They had nowhere to go. Because Ebbets Field was so small, you couldn't go hang out in the lobby because there wasn't one. They just had to endure the Ramones."
