From the Telegraph 08 Jun 2002

None of the band members was originally called Ramone. Dee Dee was born Douglas Glenn Colvin at Fort Lee, Virginia, on September 18 1952. His father served in the United States Army, and the family moved frequently; after spells in Korea and Japan, Douglas spent much of his childhood in Germany. According to his autobiography, Lobotomy: Surviving the Ramones, published two years ago, Douglas's father beat him regularly; in the late 1960s his parents separated, Mrs Colvin taking Douglas and his sister to live in New York. Here he met John Cummings (Johnny Ramone), Jeffrey Hyman (Joey Ramone), and Tommy Erdelyi (Tommy Ramone); they were, he recorded in his autobiography, "the obvious creeps of the neighbourhood". Douglas dropped out of high school, tried his hand at petty crime and began using LSD and heroin.
