Warren Cohen Collection

Back to Home | Previous Page

Working for a baseball memorabilia promotional company in early 1980s New York seemed like a fortuitous time for a young Warren Cohen. The job offered a unique opportunity to build his hobby into a career and, every once in a while, even meet a few of his diamond heroes. But when John Cummings, aka Johnny Ramone, began attending these shows, little did Cohen know that his own playing field was about to drastically change. It was only after several visits by Cummings to these memorabilia shows that Cohen finally admitted to being a fan of the Ramones. The pair bonded quickly over baseball, horror movies, and autograph collecting, and it wasn’t long before Cohen found his name on guest lists for popular Ramones shows in NYC.

Cohen became a familiar face to many of the backstage crew, and after a while he was entrusted with small responsibilities at each venue. Aware that Cohen had become unhappy with his current job, Cummings offered his friend to travel with the band as a full-time employee. Cohen accepted and soon found himself working a variety of positions, ranging from merchandiser to backstage security, and then finally as tour assistant. Personally assembled by Cohen during his time spent touring with one the world’s largest and most identifiable rock bands, this remarkable collection features one-of-a-kind signed posters, CDs, and photos, a Joey Ramone stage-used leather glove, and an unprecedented pair of Marky Ramone’s touring road cases, each one packed with drum heads, cymbals, sticks, and other exciting Ramone-related ephemera.
