The Dictators NYC
The Dictators NYC will be touring Europe in 2016 again! The Dictators from New York City! The band that influenced so many rock and punk rock bands all over the world, the band which got Ross the Boss from MANOWAR and Daniel Rey, producer of Ramones albums and songwriter of Ramones songs, on guitar and Handsome Dick Manitoba on vocals! The band once asked “Who will save RocknRoll” and the answer to this is The Dictators NYC!
The band was founded in 1973 in New York City and had a great influence on countless rock and punk bands ever since together with bands like MC5, New York Dolls and The Stooges.
After not playing for years, one day, 3 guys from THE DICTATORS, the lead singer, Handsome Dick Manitoba, the lead guitar player, Ross The Boss, and the drummer, JP “Thunderbolt” Patterson, decided to answer the call. They thought this music, that meant so much to so many, should not be put to rest.
So they went out and got the best, most fun bass player they knew, a man by the name of Dean “The Dream” Rispler, and they added a guitar player with a great punk rock pedigree, a man who wrote songs with and produced albums by THE RAMONES. That man was Daniel Rey.
