Link: Danny Says…

Danny Fields was the manager of the Ramones, but he also signed Iggy and the Stooges and the MC5 to Elektra records (on the same day), and published the story in which John Lennon said the Beatles were bigger than Jesus, which caused a ruckus. A story in the New York Times visits Fields as he packs his trove of recordings and papers (and maybe some home made porn) for the Beinecke Library at Yale, which has acquired it.

One highlight is a clip from one of Fields’ audio cassettes of Lou Reed after first hearing a recording of the Ramones (even though he is bleeped).

Oh, and there’s a movie about Fields coming out this March.

And there is this song.
