9780996372411: Too Tough to Love: My Life with Johnny Ramone

TOO TOUGH TO LOVE is Cynthia "Roxy" Whitney's first-person account of her 20-year affair with punk guitar legend and Ramones co-founder Johnny Ramone - a story that has never been told until now. While most fans have heard of the notorious love triangle of Johnny, singer Joey Ramone, and Joey's girlfriend Linda Daniele (later Mrs. Johnny Ramone), very few know that the "triangle" had a fourth side - Roxy. In her inimitable voice, she gives a no-holds-barred account of her life as a teenaged stripper in 1970s New York, the early days of punk and the Ramones, and the betrayal that nearly shattered the band. Roxy was written out of the Ramones' official history, but her relationship with Johnny continued in secret for many years - even after his marriage to Linda. As told to spoken-word poet Emily XYZ, Roxy's story is full of vivid, funny, hair-raising and poignant details, and paints a far more complex and human portrait of Johnny than any other Ramones history or memoir so far.

About the Author:

Cynthia “Roxy” Whitney was at the center of the downtown rock scene in New York from the time she arrived in 1974 at age 17. Along with her friend Anya Phillips, she helped create the bondage-inspired, extreme style that became famous as the “punk” look. Her social circle included, and brought together, many underground musicians and artists of mid-70s New York. She was also Johnny Ramone’s girlfriend during the first and most influential phase of the band’s career. She lives in Los Angeles. Emily XYZ is a writer, spoken-word performer, and Ramones fan. She is the author of The Emily XYZ Songbook: Poems for 2 Voices. Her work is featured in the PBS Television series The United States of Poetry, and in numerous anthologies, including Aloud: Voices from the Nuyorican Poets Cafe, and Up is Up but So is Down: New York’s Downtown Literary Scene, 1974–1992.
