Johnny tossed me the pick during a break in their performance. I took the photo that day on a 110mm camera…It was autographed by Johnny at a Strawberries Records in-store signing on October 13th, 1984 in Manchester, NH, hosted by my personal friend, former bandmate, and renowned Ramones expert Chris Lamy."
