PUNK ROCK ICON Tommy Ramone, LAST ORIGINAL MEMBER OF THE RAMONES DEAD AT 65. Born Erdelyi Tamas, January 29, 1949 - July 11, 2014, better known by his stage name, Tommy Ramone was a Hungarian American record producer and musician. He was the drummer of the influential punk rock band, the Ramones. Ramone was reportedly battling cancer when he died. Johnny Ramone (John Cummings) died in 2004 of prostate cancer, Joey Ramone (Jeff Hyman) died in 2001 of lymphatic cancer, and Dee Dee Ramone (Douglas Colvin) died from a drug overdose in 2002. I still love the old punk bands of the '70's, like the Ramones and The Clash and still listen to them all the time to this day! When my bike shop, Rat City Rods was open up in Berlin, New Hampshire, the Ramones would be blasting through the stereo at 3 in the morning every night while my friends and I were hanging out swillin' some Mad Dog. Good times! Rest in Peace Ramones! YOU ARE MISSED but the music will NEVER die!
No way! Tommy Ramone, the LAST original Ramone died today. I idolize the Ramones and it *** to hear. Ten years after Johnny Ramone died. The band is gone forever but the music will never die. Makes me sad.
let's hope Tommy Ramone is reuniting with both Joey, Johnny, and Dee Dee up in heaven for the Angels to enjoy

r.i.p Johnny Ramone. All of the Ramones are all gone now :/
The last of The Ramones has passed away. A business associate says Tommy Ramone, a co-founder of the seminal punk band The Ramones and the last surviving member of the original group, has died. Dave Frey, who works for Ramones Productions and Silent Partner Management, says Ramone's wife called to tell him he died on Friday. He didn't have additional details early Saturday. Ramone was 62. Tommy Ramone, a drummer, co-founded the Ramones in 1974 in New York along with singer Joey Ramone, bassist DeeDee Ramone and guitarist Johnny Ramone. All four band members had different last names, but took the common name Ramone. The band influenced a generation of rockers, and their hit songs "I wanna be sedated" and "Blitzkrieg Bop," among others, earned them an induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2002.
From DListed: "So now Tommy joins the rest of the original Ramones in Heaven. Joey Ramone was the first to say 'Hey *** let’s go' and flew up in 2001, Dee Dee Ramone died in 2002, and Johnny Ramone followed him in 2004. And now that Joey, Dee Dee, and Johnny have a drummer, they can finally play 'Happy Birthday' for Jesus at his birthday party this year. Don’t rest in peace, Tommy; keep playing as loud and fast as you always did. I hope you get noise complaints every single night from the other angels."
But I'd like to give a special dedication to the late heroes; Oderus Urungus and Johnny Ramone.
RIP Johnny Ramone. Now the band's back together.

Brad & Bobby saw Cheap Trick last night at Hampton Beach and Brad talked to Robin Zander about the rumor of him stealing Johnny Ramones Rickenbaker 450. He confirmed it IS Johns guitar but he didn't steal it! They were all really cool guys to hangout and talk to fans after the show.
November 1976, Johnnie Lovesin And The Invisible Band opened for The Ramones at the New Yorker Theatre in Toronto and was observed by Toronto Sun columnist Wilder Penfield III as having blown The Ramones off the stage. Sadly Johnny Ramone has left us, but I got an opportunity to visit his monument in California, check it out Prior to Johnny's death in 2004, he and his wife Linda supervised the erection of an 8 ft tall bronze memorial of Johnny at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles, California.

Here's a Throwback Thursday (We used to put out a four page 'newsletter' before shows. I don't know why we stopped doing this, or why we thought it was a good idea.

At the time, his book (On The Road With The Ramones) was going to a new printing, and Monte was doing a few interviews on TV talking about his time with legendary crazy person Phil Specter. So, for TBT, here's that interview. Enjoy. Goons: What's in the new version of the book? I saw that it's being released again. Monte: I got about 8, 10 pages more of stuff that happened after I wrote the book. Johnny Ramone's grave, Joey's sign downtown, that streetsign, did you hear about that? Goons: Yeah I went there this summer, I got to take a look at it. I got to see CBGB's before it closed. Monte: Stuff about Johnny, the statue in the cemetery, have you heard about that?

Imagine Django Reinhardt, the Dresden Dolls, Johnny Ramone, Siouxsie Sioux and Edith Piaf jamming together at an event hosted by Deepak Chopra and Toulouse Lautrec. This is what it might sound like. A sultry French-born singer, percussionist and a fiery punk rock guitarist from the golden days of the hardcore scene formed Frenchy and the Punk in 2005. The unlikely pairing has since released 6 full-length CDs, produced a live concert DVD and have performed all across the U.S. and in Europe. In May 2012, Yahoo Music called them one of the top 25 duos in the US. Their show is a carnival of two that will take you from Paris to CBGBs and back again.

Jeffrey Ross Hyman (May 19, 1951 – April 15, 2001), best known by his stage name Joey Ramone, was an American musician and singer-songwriter, best known as the lead vocalist of the punk rock band the Ramones. Joey Ramone's image, voice, and tenure as frontman of the Ramones made him a countercultural icon. In 1974, Jeffrey Hyman co-founded the punk rock band Ramones with friends John Cummings and Douglas Colvin, upon which point all three adopted stage names using "Ramone" as their surname: Cummings became Johnny Ramone, Colvin became Dee Dee Ramone, and Hyman became Joey Ramone. The name Ramone stems from a story that Paul McCartney briefly used the stage name "Paul Ramone" during the Beatles early days when the band used the name The Silver Beetles. Joey initially served as the group's drummer while Dee Dee Ramone was the original vocalist. However, when Dee Dee's vocal cords proved unable to sustain the demands of consistent live performance, Ramones manager Thomas Erdelyi suggested Joey switch to vo ...

Punk rock pioneer Jeffrey Ross Hyman, better known as Joey Ramone, died on this date in 2001 after a 7-year battle with lymphoma. When he and bandmates John Cummings and Douglas Colvin founded The Ramones in Forest Hills, Queens, in 1974 they came up with the novel approach of having each band member take the surname Ramone. They got the idea from a pseudonym - Paul Ramon - that Paul McCartney used when the "Silver Beetles" were touring in 1960. Joey, lead singer and co-songwriter, was the heart of the band. He was long-haired and lanky and defined New York punk fashion with his black Schott Perfecto leather jacket, torn jeans, striped t-shirts, and sneakers. The original band members included Cummings (Johnny Ramone) on guitar, Colvin (Dee Dee Ramone) on bass, and Thomas Erdelyi (Tommy Ramone) on drums. In November 2003, New York City officials renamed a block of East 2nd Street in the Bowery "Joey Ramone Place." The sign that marks the site was stolen and replaced four times in 2003.

Trixy & 2 of his Testones rockin' "Bits & Pieces" at The Marble Bar circa 1981 (from l to r: Jay Graboski, Kraig {Trixy} Krixer & David Jarkowski) "Trixy & Co. make energetic and raucous revivals, with a driving rhythm section setting the tone for the raunchy vocals...a rockin' good time." Jim Green, Trouser Press 1979 "I liked the record a lot. Palisades Park came out really good. We always had wanted to do that song but never did." Johnny Ramone "Trixy & the Testones have released an intense version of the old Chuck Barris hit, 'Palisades Park'. It is rock in its most primitive incarnation. 'Where The Action Is' carried to a frenzied extreme. The 45, both sides in total, comes to over two hundred seconds of aural stimulation." --Patti Rosenberg (City Paper) "As far as Trixy and the Testones go, their only bow to the past is in the mix, which sounds vaguely like Phil Spector working out of a phone booth.

f you want to see several stars all in one place, then the place to go is the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. Of course, the stars that you'll see there are all mostly long dead and gone; I say mostly. Founded in 1899 and located on Santa Monica Boulevard in Hollywood, the Hollywood Forever Cemetery not only is it the resting place for hundreds of Hollywood's stars and other famous persons, but it remains a fully operating cemetery to this day still performing new burials and cremations every week. Today its owner was once an advisor on the television series, Six Feet Under. Some of the famous stars buried here include Douglas Fairbanks, Tyrone Power, Peter Lorre, Marion Davies, Carl "Alfalfa" Switzer, and Charlie Chaplin Jr. Recent additions, in the past few years, include Fay Wray of King Kong and guitarist Johnny Ramone. Cecil B. Demille's Grave Other colorful characters of note include the director of "Ten Commandments", Cecil B. DeMille. During the making of that film, he buried his enormous Egyptian set ...
