Here are some irrelevant facts that no one is interested in, but nevertheless still have been added to this web site by Danny himself.

- Danny Ramirez wrote his first song at some time in the afternoon or early evening of Tuesday 2 June 1998.

- He had a day off from work that day to recover from the Dynamo Open Air Festival.

- The first song was entitled I'm A Serial Killer (without an exclamation mark), which was later changed to I Would Like To Kill You!. From then on all song titles were set to have an exclamation mark at the end.

- During his career Danny also released some songs with a question mark in the title.

- The inspiration for I Would Like To Kill You! was brought to young Danny when he watched the series Beverly Hills 90210, which particular one had an acoustic opening song probably by Chris Isaak. At that moment the idea of creating such an acoustic song with lyrics about murder came to Danny's perverted mind.

- Initially Danny Ramirez planned to compose and record just one song, namely I Would Like To Kill You!.

- Because back then he'd recently seen a 60s gig by acoustic duo Simon & Garfunkel on television, Danny decided to do a recording with a 'live' feel and the audience applauding at several points during the song, like when the singing starts -- just as in the old days. To create the right atmosphere also some gunshots were added.

- The keyboard used for the Danny Ramirez recordings is a Technics sx-KN3000.

- When he released his first 4-song tape Load Your Gun And Have Some Fun! he already had six songs recorded.

- Danny lent the surname of the infamous 1985 serial killer Richard Ramirez for his alias. He did this because then he could use the inverted pentagram on his first tape cover. This was the symbol Richard Ramirez used, or misused.

- To keep up the false appearance of being a live recording which involved several musicians, Danny thought it was a good idea to add 'and friends' to his artist name. The first tape therefore was released as 'Danny Ramirez and friends'.

- In the first months he indeed had the idea of only doing shows with a drummer and a bass player, but this was abandoned because it could harm the songs' bizarre acoustic atmospheres.

- The addition 'and friends' got dropped when Danny decided to do his first gig and released the Danny Ramirez T-shirt.

- Rumors have it that several Ramirez fans have been having sex while playing the first tape.

- Danny Ramirez's first show took place when the evil singer-songwriter had been around for exactly ten months: April 2nd 1999.

- The idea to do this gig arose January 1, 1999, during a night's out with some friends (including the guy who lived at the house where the gig was to take place) at café de Albatros in Katwijk aan Zee.

- The live registration of this show was scheduled first for a tape release in the Summer of 1999 and later for a late 1999 or 2000 tape release, but this didn't come to fruition either. Instead Ramirez released the live version of I Hope You Die In A Freak Accident! on the cd-rom part of Only Entertainment's final cd released in September 2001. This was a band Danny played in at the time.

- He decided to do his live gigs wearing dark sunglasses for then he didn't have to look his fans in the eyes when singing his brutal lyrics.

- Initially it was planned to name the second tape Reload Your Gun!, just like was done with Load and Reload by Metallica -- a great speed metal band from the 1980s. The title Reload Your Gun! was later given to Danny's first cd, which came out in August 2002.

- Danny was recovering from quite a bad cold and twisted innards when he performed his two gigs in December 1999.

- Danny Ramirez didn't ask to get paid for his early gigs and on one occasion (New Year's Eve 1999) even brought his own beer with him.

- It was this 31 December night that he was on stage most intoxicated, but managed to play his longest show thus far.

- The Danny Ramirez logo has been created in the early June 1998 days and has been copied and used for most of the artwork ever since.

- For the April 1999 Danny Ramirez T-shirts the logo and inverted pentagram were drawn at a bigger size to cover half of the front. Danny was keen to draw the same out of shape pentagram with not identical 'alpha' sections (the 'triangles' in the pentagram).

- Several local musicians wore the Danny Ramirez T-shirt during one of their own gigs, most of them being singers themselves.

- Danny occasionally wore the Danny Ramirez T-shirt during gigs in 1999 and 2000 as one of the guitar players for the band Only Entertainment.

- Several girls seem to go to sleep at night wearing the Danny Ramirez T-shirt.

- Being very lazy Danny took it easy and instead of recording the songs again relied on his old recordings from 1998 when he selected the track list for his second tape in June 1999. Only some vocals were redone.

- Danny has recorded and mixed all of his tapes at the Ramirez Recording Room, although the information on his first four tapes never was clear about this.

- The information on all seven Danny Ramirez's music cassettes (released 1998-2006) was written using an electric typewriter, namely a Smith-Corona EC 1100.

- For the covers of the first four tape releases initially white paper was used, but later on covers on coloured paper were introduced. Colours were chosen randomly and mostly depending on what free sheets of paper Danny had laid his hands on. So any given 1998-2000 tape could have been released with a white, yellow, green, orange, blue or red cover.

- It took Danny only fifteen minutes to mix the April 1999 live recording of I Hope You Die In A Freak Accident! for the cd-rom part of Only Entertainment's final cd released in September 2001.

- Underneath the lyrics on the cd-rom it is said that I Hope You Die! was written on June 4th and 5th of 1998. However this ain't true, 'cause the song actually was made on June 3rd and/or 4th of 1998. It is 100% certain that it was first recorded on June 4th. This is the recording that was used for the first tape.

- The front cover of this final Only Entertainment cd shows Danny Ramirez as he was used to perform on stage during his gigs in 1999 and most of his at the time still to come gigs in 2002 and 2003, wearing a black shirt, a black jacket and reflecting sunglasses. The rucksack he's carrying is just a photo shoot prop and doesn't belong to Danny nor his stage outfit. Up from January 2004 (and possibly at some live dates during the Summer of 2003) Danny started doing his gigs wearing a T-shirt instead of a jacket over a black flanel shirt (of course he's been wearing trousers, shoes et cetera as well all this time).

- After having done no gigs at all since December 31, 1999, Danny returned back on stage on February 22, 2002, with an acoustic guitar, whereas his three 1999 gigs were performed playing an electric guitar. For the first gig on April 2, 1999, Ramirez used a black B.C. Rich (model 'Bich'), and for his gigs on December 24 and December 31, 1999, he switched to a dark red Pearl (model 'Export Standard').

- Around the time of his live come back in February 2002, the recordings for his first cd Reload Your Gun! were almost finished. Nevertheless it took until Friday 23 August 2002 before it got released.

- By August 2002 Danny already had eight new songs ready about the Life & Times of Richard 'The Night Stalker' Ramirez for a fifth tape release. In December two more were written to make the music cassette last 28 minutes. Recordings began on X-mas Day 2002.

- To release the tape took even longer than the ten months of recordings and stuff it took to release the Reload Your Gun! debut cd. The Night Stalker! (more or less) full length tape finally appeared in May 2004, almost one-and-a-half years after recordings for it had started.

- Danny thought that was way too long and decided to release his sixth music cassette On A Killing Spree! in April 2005 with recordings from late January 'till early April of the same year.

- One year later already it was time to release the seventh tape Murder Is Still A Crime!, with songs that tell people what not to do. It took a mere seven days to record this tape, mostly during the four days from 25-28 December 2005.

- Being lazy as he is, on this music cassette Danny also included a song that already got recorded in January/February 2002 and hadn't made it to his first cd, returning again to having years between recordings and release. And setting the pace for future Ramirez releases, such as his second cd.

- Contrary to the colourful 1998-2000 releases, the 2004-2006 tapes all came with a cover on gray paper.

- For the movie on the Danny Ramirez dvd One Day On The Road (released in November 2005) the voice of Wollem was dubbed by Thuur when the spoken word recordings were done in the studio, 'cause Wollem didn't had much time to hang around and wait.

- Danny's second cd Misanthropicus Fanaticus! contains two songs that were recorded as early as March 2005. During that year the On A Killing Spree! music cassette and the One Day On The Road dvd were set for release, and Danny thought those were enough for the year and halted the recordings for his second cd. One-and-a-half years later Ramirez continued working on it and in December 2006 most recordings were done. Misanthropicus Fanaticus! finally got released on Monday 21 May 2007 after intensive mixing and mastering sessions which took place at a studio.

- Since then Danny never has been in a professional mixing studio again, and decided to download free audio recording software from the internet so he could create a digital mix in the private space of his Ramirez Recording Room.

- For his seven 1998-2006 music cassette releases he also did the mixing himself, but used a second music cassette and a JVC KD-A2 cassette deck to record the final mix.

- After Initially having done just two live dates in early June 2007 for Misanthropicus Fanaticus!, at the end of the year Danny felt the need to start doing more gigs in order to promote the cd. This resulted in the Misanthropic Winter Tour! from mid February to early March of 2008, playing one gig each weekend, three weekends in a row -- which still stands as one of Danny's most relentless tour schedules to date!

- The first result of Danny's new found digital mixing abilities is his third cd In Concert And Intoxicated! that was released on Saturday 8 August 2009 through THC productions.

- Lee Rascal, who produced this cd for THC, is a fictional person and got conceived on July 30, 2009. Throughout his career Danny has worked with a few more fictional characters related to THC, namely Alan Smithee and Thomas Lee, who are mentioned on The Night Stalker!-music cassette (2004).

- Because Danny knew (and still knows) he wrote his best songs in the early days, for In Concert And Intoxicated! he decided to make it a release with five new tracks and five classic Ramirez hits recorded at gigs from August 2004 until March 2009.

- With a release of only about five copies the In Concert And Intoxicated! cd sold out within a few weeks, if not a few months.

- In August 2011 Danny announced on his website that he was working on his soon to be released and as yet untitled fourth full-length cd, but late October he got distracted by the upcoming X-mas season and in November released his online EP X-mas Time With Danny Ramirez! instead.

- Early 2012 Danny Ramirez performed his final gigs with an instrumental backing instead of playing his acoustic guitar. Danny made the change to being a solo singer singing along with the instrumental versions of his songs in March 2009 on the instigation of Paul Zwetsloot, for the Tegendraads Festival he was organizing in April.

- Although at first Ramirez wasn't too eager to play live without his guitar, a few days later he saw the advantages of having one hand free to hold a beer or something.

- Danny's tenure of doing instrumental backing gigs lasted from April 4, 2009 until March 30, 2012. During those years Ramirez also did two acoustic private garden party gigs (although without any vocal amplification).

- On June 1, 2012, Danny's fans were delighted to witness him play his first proper acoustic guitar gig since May 31, 2008. Ramirez's final acoustic guitar performance before the April 2009 change to singing along with an instrumental backing took place on March 12, 2009, in Reims (France), and apart from Toner Low band members there were only French people there.

- With Ramirez mostly focusing on doing acoustic guitar gigs in the second half of 2012, he forgot about the recordings for his fourth cd altogether.

- However, in October Danny got a request to send in a track for a Sinterklaas online compilation. The result is the only Ramirez song with Dutch lyrics, as well as the only Ramirez song with an accompanying electric guitar throughout the entire tune.

- Because the band Toner Low Danny plays in was doing quite some gigs in 2013 and 2014, during this period Ramirez himself performed live only once a year.

- For his 2014 gig Ramirez again used an instrumental backing of his songs. His most recent performance without a guitar took place in June 2016.

- Apart from forgetting about his fourth full-length cd and hardly doing any gigs, Danny almost forgot to write Ramirez songs as well. In both 2013 and 2014 it took him up to the evening of December 31 to start composing his first and only Ramirez tune for the year.

- One of the other reasons of Danny's little to no output during 2012-2015 considering new studio recordings was the fact that he wasn't sure if he wanted to go through all the hassle of making a new physical cd. Eventually he decided to release his future stuff on the internet.

- While working on his comeback online EP Back With A Dungeon! in August 2016, Danny wondered why he hadn't released the songs earlier because the recordings were as good as finished, although most vocals had to be redone and some lead guitar still had to be added. One song was rerecorded completely.

- Contrary to the November 2011 online EP X-mas Time With Danny Ramirez! and the November 2012 Sinterklaas online compilation song, the songs for Back With A Dungeon! were recorded on tape first and digitalized aferwards instead of recorded directly to digital audio format.

- The same recording and mixing process was used for his Summer 2017 release.

- Danny titled his July 2017 online release Outlawed Outsider! as such because in October 2016 he added the tag 'outsider music' to the Ramirez internet pages, and around May 2017 thought the term 'outsider' therefore should be in the EP title.

- For the front cover he was keen to use a Danny Ramirez photo taken outside. In addition, all of the lyrics on Outlawed Outsider! involve outside activity in one way or another.
