    IMG_0053.PNG IMG_0135.JPG Anyone know what sticker this is on front of Sid's bass and Steve's guitar?
     
  6. Highly likely it's a Ramones sticker. Either one of these,just in blue instead of black.

  10. Seeing that photo I'll agree. Not The Ramones.

    Cool idea :cool: He must have slapped that on there at the very tail end of his 'career', though ... cuz in almost all pics of him with that bass, it isn't there. Good luck in your search ... I'm curious now as well :)
     
  14. Not sure but it isn't anything mentioned so far... maybe some underground band that was never well known? It looks like there is a skeleton in the middle with bat wings.

    It kinda looks like it could be a military patch, or maybe a biker club logo? The graphic looks like a helmet or maybe a skull with horns coming out of it.

    Steve Jones does a local radio show on KLOS in LA called Jonesy's Jukebox. You can find him on Facebook under that name. You could hit him up and ask him.

    I know he is out this week promoting his new book.
