A Joey Ramone leather jacket worn in Final Rinse
Polyvinyl Film, 1999. Black leather motorcycle jacket with laces 3-1/2 inches up the bottom sides, "Schott" buttons on the lapels and on the front, somewhat distressed. With polaroid of Joey on set in the jacket.
Provenance: Astrid Brucker, costume designer for the film (LOA).

Joey Ramone was the lead vocalist for the punk rock band, The Ramones, whose legendary songs brought punk into the mainstream and still resonate with today's rock bands, punk or otherwise. This jacket is a perfect example of the minimalism that became their signature look and was reflected in the simplicity and purity of their music. Joey Ramone made his final film appearance in the Rock & Roll comedy Final Rinse. According to costume designer Astrid Brucker, Joey was wearing his own jacket for the shoot; however, the camera lights inside the night club were so hot, she offered him this lighter jacket to wear, which he did. Joey Ramone died in 2001 after suffering for many years with lymphoma.
