Marky Ramone Says Early Band Bit The Dust Due To Label

(Classic Rock) Marky Ramone says his first successful band, Dust, might have survived for longer than two albums if they hadn't signed to Kama Sutra Records in 1971.

He recalls: "We did some shows here and there with Alice Cooper. We did some shows with Wishbone Ash and John Mayall. Our manager wasn't experienced, but we stuck by him.

"When the first album came out, the reviews were good. Wherever we played, people loved it. We had to do a second album because it was in our contract. We really felt later on that it was the wrong label to be on they catered to bubblegum groups.

They had some good groups too; they had the Lovin' Spoonful who had great songs. But maybe if we were a little more patient, we could have been on an Atlantic or a Warner Bros." more on this story
