Dee Dee Ramone T-Shirt, vintage Eat the Rich tee worn by Dee Dee Ramone.
Dee Dee Ramone was a founding member of The Ramones and the main songwriter and lyricist for the band. But before they became The Ramones, Dee Dee and his friends were just a group of guys trying to name their band. After reading about Paul McCartney's trick of checking into hotels under the name Paul Ramone, Dee Dee took the idea further and convinced his bandmates to change their names. They did, and The Ramones were born.
In 1989 after leaving the Ramones, he started a brief career as rapper as "Dee Dee King" with the album Standing in the Spotlight. It was during a shoot for that album that Dee Dee was photographed wearing this Eat the Rich shirt from the 1989 Peter Richardson film that came out the same year. The movie starred most of the cast of the Young Ones and also Lemmy from Motorhead. There is also an Aerosmith song with the same title released in 1993.
