Heheh, I wish I knew the answer to your question but I have wondered the same thing. I can’t picture him in any other glasses though, it wouldn’t be the same!

I read this interview where it said that Joey interviewd Pia Zadora, but I'm not sure if it was real or just made up by someone, you wouldn't happen to know if it really happened, would you? :)

It was for Spin Magazine, for a while they had a series with celebrities interviewing celebrities type thing, and Legs McNeil was working for the magazine and got it together I think. Joey just read off the questions given to him by whoever.

Here’s a picture!

Did Joey and Johnny ever get along? I'm talking about before the whole girlfriend thing. I've heard that even as teenagers they weren't too fond of eachother haha, just curious! Thanks Rachel!

Nope not really. Johnny was friends with Joey’s younger brother Mickey and they were in a band together which is how the two knew each other, and Johnny was never too fond of Joey. In the beginning they didn’t hate each other or anything they just weren’t friends. I’m sure they had their moments, but Joey was more friends with Dee Dee than he was Johnny. And no problem! :)

Just found your blog, and ugh. It's perfect! Finally people who appreciate Joey as much as I do!

Thank you so much <3

how did Joey burn his face? :o

Before shows in the 70’s, he would basically use a teapot as a sort of makeshift vaporizer to clear his throat up. Basically, the little contraption they made broke one night and a bunch of scalding hot water shot out of the tea kettle into his face, causing severe burns. He still played the show though, even though it turned out he was suffering from third degree burns! The next day he went to the hospital for it.
