The Week in Video: Joey Ramone, The Dollyrots, Glen Campbell, Jay Smooth and The Green Day Meltdown!
A cleverly-edited posthumous video features New Yorkers (famous and unknown) showing off Joey Ramone's beloved hometown:
Pop-punk-rock 'girl-group', The Dollyrots, have gone from Lookout Record to Joan Jett's Blckout Records to their own, Kickstarter-funded label, and still sound and look great!
As Johnny Cash did nearing the end of his days, country legend Glen Campbell is both surveying his past and creating a final present.
And hip-hop commentator man, Jay Smooth, reminds us why all Mitt Romney's family stories all sound weird.
Finally, the Green Day video of the week is not the rather tepid new track, "Stay the Night" but Bille Joe's meltdown at the iHeart Radio Festival. As a fan, I'm a tiny bit sympathetic but, realistically, I've got to admit that temper-tantrums do not become a man of his age.
