Marky Ramone has revealed some more details about his new pasta sauce in a new interview. The drummer explained:
It may sound corny, but I've got this pasta sauce coming out called 'Marky Ramone's Brooklyn's Own Pasta Sauce.' You see, I made it with my grandpa; he was a chef at 21 Club. I watched him as a little boy, and then when I got older, I lived alone at 18, and so pasta sauce and spaghetti was the cheapest thing around," says Ramone. "I got really good at making it, and so I am excited I get to share my recipe with others. And I got to do the artwork on bottle, and it's really cool looking. Soon it will be sold in stores; right now you can only get it online and in restaurants.
People I knew were like, 'are you kidding me, you're a DJ not a chef!' And so I said, 'why not?' says Marky. "It always thrilled me to see him, my grandpa, cook. I had always wanted to do it, and so I went for the opportunity. It was new and I like doing new things. I tested the waters first, and people really liked it, so I'm saying 'hey, if you want more you can have it!'
The charity I am going to send it to will be one that goes to the soldiers coming home from Iraq who need it. And some will go to the families who've lost husbands and wives in the war. I've always said, you don't have to support the war, but you should always, always, support the troops.
