I first met Wayne at an after show party, there was always a party, in a mutual friends house. Wayne had recently completed a two+ year sentence in federal prison. I was introduced as a "writer". This wasn't specifically true. I did write commercials but that was it. Wayne said "hey, you can write the notes on the album I'm gonna do". While I knew this wasn't true I was flattered none the less. In the short time I knew him I found him to be charming and quite the raconteur. MR. Kramer had his detractors but I always found him interesting. I later heard he was forming a band with former New York Doll/Heartbreaker Johnny Thunders. They ended up calling the band "Gang War"
