Interview by Danny Fields - Fifteen years after Please Kill Me was first published, we continue to meet people who say that our book changed their lives. Always curious about the why when and where, we wanted details. And who better to ask the hard questions than the guy we dedicated our book to, the Danny Fields, “the coolest guy in the room”? When Danny was in Berlin for an exhibit of his photos at the Ramones Museum he encountered a bright young man named Joscha Blankenburg, 20, (seen Mohawked in top photo at the age of 15), himself ein Berliner who was born a few years after the re-unification of Germany, which certainly qualifies him as innocent of the events re-counted in our book.
by Legs McNeil - "Mug shots. Nothing but mug shots." -- Imagine that you’ve just pulled out of the bar after a couple of drinks, your still trying to fasten your seatbelt-- when flickering red lights suddenly appear in your rearview mirror and a police siren pops on, signaling you to pull over. After a quick hand to eye sobriety test, the police officer asks you to blow into the breathalyzer-- and it comes up snake eyes. You lose; prepare to add a DUI to your permanent record.
