I Don't Care About History, 'Cause That's Not Where I Wanna Be

Here in the 21st Century, 3/4 of the Ramones are dead... and now this:

Shock jock and self-proclaimed “King of All Media” Howard Stern is turning his sights back on films with a planned remake of the classic teen flick Rock ‘n’ Roll High School. Often on his radio show, Stern discussed his love of the original 1979 film, which was about a group of punk-rock-loving students who — with an assist from the Ramones — rebel against the school’s oppressive administration. Stern is set to produce, with Alex Winter (Bill from Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, now a director of music videos and TV) on tap to write the screenplay. Winter is also reportedly working on a script for MTV Films about Napster founder Shawn Fanning. As for Stern, he’s also producing another ’70s remake in Porky’s, with production possibly beginning in the fall.

Oh well.. Something else from my Salad Days desecrated.. I wonder what Monty Montgomery thinks of this; Monty was one of Umlaut's best friends back in 1979 who introduced me to 1-2-3-4. If anyone knows where Monty is these days let Umlaut know...
