"A History of Punk & Metal"

..Two Revolutionary, Ground Breaking Bands

..Two Successful Melodic Rock Bands

One Multi-Platinum Solo Career

Beauvoir, originally with the Plasmatics, the most outrageous, controversial and successful Punk Rock Metal band ever who influenced generations of up and coming artist's and fashion icons went on to a multi-platinum solo career. He was also a longtime songwriter and producer for the legendary Ramones, who influenced generations of artist's and fashion icons as well.

Wherever the Plasmatics performed, legions of fans and the news outlets followed. After leaving the Plasmatics, Beauvoir toured with Little Steven and the Disciples of Soul before breaking into his multi-platinum solo career. The hit single from his solo debut album was personally selected by Sylvester Stallone for the film Cobra, receiving at the time one of the largest, advertising and promotional campaigns for a Hollywood movie to date.

Today, the Ramones are hailed as "one of the greatest Punk bands in the world" with their own Ramones Museum Berlin. The Jean Beauvoir penned and produced Ramones song "Bonzo Goes to Bitburg" retitled "My Brain is Hanging Upside Down" featured in "School Of Rock" (Jack Black) also won the New York Music Award for "Best Single" and is referred to as "brilliant" by Rolling Stone. The song is also referred to as "the best Ramones song ever written and best Joey Ramone vocal performance of their career" by Salon's Wyman.

Together the Plasmatics and the Ramones became "two of the most revolutionary bands" in music history. Their members are revered as the Godfathers and Grand Dame (Wendy O. Williams) of Punk & Metal.
