Johnny Ramone Chiller's long time friend Johnny Ramone has passed away after a five year fight with cancer. He was 55. Johnny passed away peacefully in his sleep on Wednesday afternoon, September 15 at 3:00 p.m. west coast time. His wife Linda was at his side. Johnny attended the first and every Chiller Theatre Expo after that, until he moved to California in the later part of the 90's. Johnny at Chiller 1991 with Monique Gabrielle and Michelle Bauer A friend of Chiller for over 13 years, Johnny showed his support for Chiller's own house band, the Dead Elvi by attending their first & second gig's back in 1994/95 at the Chiller Theatre expo in Secaucus, NJ. Early this year I took a trip to California in January. I had the good fortune to visit with Johnny and hang out with him for the afternoon at his home in the Los Angeles hills. Hanging on the wall directly across from where we were sitting was the original "Abbott & Costello meet Frankenstein" insert poster that I had sold him back in 1991. It was like ...

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 ...
On May the 19th 1951 a young and talented musician was born in Forest Hills, New York, United States. Jeffry Ross Hyman (known by his name, Joey Ramone) was a fan of The Beatles, The Who, David Bowie and The Stooges among other bands. Jeffry took up drums at 13, and played throughout his teen years. Before he joined the Ramones, he was the singer in a band called Sniper. In 1974, Jeffry 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. Joey Ramone died of lymphoma at New York-Presbyterian Hospital on April 15, 2001, after a seven-year battle.

Origin: Forest Hills, Queens Decades: 1974–1996 The Ramones were an American rock band that formed in Forest Hills, Queens, New York in 1974, often cited as the first punk rock group. Despite achieving only limited commercial success, the band was a major influence on the punk rock movement both in the United States and the United Kingdom. All of the band members adopted pseudonyms ending with the surname "Ramone", though none of them were actually related. They performed 2,263 concerts, touring virtually nonstop for 22 years. In 1996, after a tour with the Lollapalooza music festival, the band played a farewell show and disbanded. By a little more than eight years after the breakup, the band's three founding members—lead singer Joey Ramone, guitarist Johnny Ramone, and bassist Dee Dee Ramone—had all died. Their only record with enough U.S. sales to be certified gold was the compilation album Ramones Mania. Recognition of the band's importance built over the years, and they are now cited in many *** ...

Coming soon ... my 55th birthday. It is an occasion for some truly random thoughts to tumble through my head. ● Given that I came of age during a couple of Arab oil embargos, I always thought of 55 as a speed limit, not an age. ● Rod Serling is one of my favorite writers. When he was my age, he had been dead for five years (with a tip of the hat to Tom Lehrer, who first told that joke about Mozart). ● What a difference five years make. I spent my 50th birthday swimming in the Atlantic ocean. Today I’m still swimming in the debts I racked up during the downturn; in fact, I think I’m still paying off the trip to Miami. ● My paternal grandmother died at 101. That meant that for me, turning 50 really was middle age. Calling myself middle-aged today means I would have to live to 110. ● In a fit of morbidness, I Googled the term “dead at 55.” What an eye-opener. I knew that Robert Urich and Johnny Ramone had died that young, but not David Dukes, Wendy Wasserstein, and Mary Frann. ● On the co ...
What does it mean to be influenced by someone? Does it mean that you become a carbon copy of the influencer? Jimmy Page influenced Brian May, Johnny Ramone, and Eddie Van Halen. Yet none of them sounds quite like the other. More drastically, Immanuel Kant influenced both Ludwig von Mises and Noam Chomsky. Those two are virtually polar opposites. So I would say no, to be influenced by someone doesn't imply either a copying effect, nor even agreement between the influence and the influenced party.

Let I make a summary of THE RAMONES History like this: - Joey Ramone: he was a college student and had some mental disorders. - Johnny Ramone: he worked as a plumber with his Dad and spent 2 year in Military school, before forming The Ramones with Dee Dee. - Dee Dee Ramone: he had a very lonely childhood and didn't have much friends, his father was an alcoholic and later divorced, and Dee Dee lived with his mom and older sister. ... but in 1969, when Dee Dee was going to the laundry and by the chance he met Johnny. They talked about the love of their mutual favorite bands, The Stooges and The MC5, they were punk bands at that time. Then they decided to form a rock band in 5 years later, 1974. First, Dee Dee was a lead vocalist and Joey played drums, Johnny played guitar. But Dee Dee's voice was just so cracking so Joey came up and became a lead vocalist, Dee Dee played bass. And they hired another member for drums position, and it was Tommy Ramone. In the late 1978, Tommy left the group because he said he ...

For your enjoyment. After spending way too much time thinking about it, I went with Jeff Beck. I almost went with Pete Townshend and Brian Setzer several times. I wasdisappointed not to see Jerry Garcia on the list as he certainly belongs in such a discussion. I was also disappointed but not surprised that John Lennon and Johnny Ramone were left off. Perhaps when they realize several guitarists are listed twice they will get a shot. Also, given the love surf/spy guitarists are getting, I was surprised not to see any 50's rockabilly or country greats other than Chet Atkins. Hank Garland? Eddie Cochran? Cliff Gallup? Scotty Moore? The Byrd guy whose first name I can't recall but who along with Hank Garland Gibson named the Byrdland after? And no Steve Howe? He won Guitar Player magazines best guitarist award six or seven times in a row in the 70's into the early 80's. I might have voted for him over Jeff Beck if I had been progging out recent

On October 20th, I'm going back to the Hollywood Forever Cemetery to see the original Dawn of the Dead not far from the grave sites of Rudolph Valentino and Johnny Ramone. Can't get much cooler than that.
As CeeLo Green sings this Thursday Night Football song Joey, Dee Dee and Johnny Ramone are turning over in their graves that Blitzkrieg Bop is being uses for this stupid song.
Gabba Gabba Hey!!! Okay the question was posed to me, "Are the Ramones all brothers?" The answer is no, no and no. Johnny Ramone, guitar, was born John Cummings, Joey Ramone, vocals, born Jeffrey Hyman, Dee Dee Ramone's, bass 74-89, real name is Douglas Colvin, Tommy Ramone's, drummer 74-78, true identity is Thomas Erdelyi, Marky Ramone, drummer 78-83 87-96, is Marc Bell, Richie Ramone, drummer 83-87, Richard Beau or Reinhardt, ok I'm not totally sure, C-Jay Ramone, bass 89-96, Christopher Ward. Alright you Ramoniacs!! Yes, Clem Burke, Clemmy/Elvis Ramone from Blondie did play with them for two shows in as many weeks while they were in secret sessions with Marky. However, with that said he definitely was not a brother to any of them. So you say, how did they all end up with the same name?? Answer, Johnny and Dee Dee, Johnny mostly, got tired of saying when introduced to music execs or fellow musicians "I'm Johnny of the Ramones" so he started saying he was Johnny Ramone and Dee Dee followed suit. Then th ...
Ramones doc is on. Did you know Nicholas Cage spoke at Johnny Ramone's funeral? i guess they were homeboys? Kinda cool?
Oops, sorry, meant to say Johnny Ramone's Commando. :)
Wow, Ramone CD's on sale at Starbucks...it's a long way back to the bowery. Somehow I think Johnny would approve.
The late, great, Johnny Ramone will finally have his autobiography published. Coming eight years after his death, the 176-page book is being released by Abrams Image on April 2.
The Sex Pistols are streaming a demo of their controversial "Belsen Was a Gas," with Johnny Rotten on vocals:

After a week of sporadic practice, my barre chords are definitely better. I'm using Where Is My Mind as my main practice song, which is perfect since it uses 4 E shaped chords in a progression and even requires a vertical shift. When I'm With You by Best Coast is my second practice song. It only uses one barre chord, but it is mixed with power chords, so it is good for building my hand's coordination. Plus, both songs force me to slow down, which is good since I play everything like I'm Johnny Ramone on speed.
I'm having one of the best times I could be having. Ramones & Johnny Cash on the PA, steelers on TV, my rock band is playing soon.
You never knew this but under Darth Vader's armor was a Johnny Ramone shirt.
Lately ive been in a slump when it came to writing riffs. I got into a power stance and thought what would Johnny Ramone do? I wrote a riff!
Besides Nikki Minaj, here are some other musicians who are supporting Romney: Alice Cooper, Kid Rock, Joe Perry (Aerosmith), Gene Simmons (KISS), Lynyrd Skynyrd, Dave Mustaine (Megadeth), Johnny Ramone, Ted Nugent, and “3 Doors Down”. I read this, did not make it up.

Girlfriend bought me the Johnny Ramone autobiography for my birthday...better get reading.
Dee Dee Ramone was somewhat a fool to end up his life doin an overdose...He should've listened to Johnny and stopped heroin.
Johnny Ramone was one major *** but he was right about The Strokes.
If my guitar would've been black/blue/white and not red, I would've named it Johnny in honour of Johnny Ramone.
Our Ladies Ramones tee, now reduced in the sale! xoxo
I hope you're not referring to the late Johnny Ramone and Dee Dee Ramone. Their bowl cuts were awesome.
Cool news, I'm been cast to play Dee Dee "the most handsome" Ramone in a short film. If you say it's Johnny, you like men with weak chins.
I don't think you're a nerd. I find you interesting. -Johnny Ramone

Currently reading Commando:The Autobiography of Johnny Ramone. It's becoming one of my favorite music/biography books. Right next to Too Much Too Soon and Rotten.
The Fleshtones do songs en Español inspired by Los Johnny Jets LP found in Joey Ramone's trash back in 1977:
It was Johnny Ramone. Gene Simmons from Kiss and Alice Cooper are both Republicans as well.

At Hollywood Forever Cemetery for the annual Johnny Ramone memorial. Lisa Marie & Priscilla Presley are here. Riley too. A music program will be followed by a screening of King Creole on the bright white wall of a huge mausoleum. Food & drink & ghosts!
I forgot where I came across this, but I sent it to the biggest rock 'n roll fan I know (which is saying a lot) -- Jim Goggin -- to see what he could do with it (I got 14, which isn't even worth mentioning). Jimmy got 26 (his comment/list is copied below). The "test" itself raised a few issues -- I thought -- which I hope will spark quite a few comments from you guitar mavens out there (are you listening, David Almeleh, Robert H Ingle III, Bob Cosgrove, and Robert Tuohy ?). Issues such as: where are women (Joni Mitchell, Bonnie Raitt,, Joan Jett?); old-timers (Carl Perkins, Chet Atkins, Duane Eddy?); older bluesmen (John Lee Hooker, Buddy Guy, Robert Johnson?); jazz legends (Django Reinhardt, Pat Metheny, John McGlaughlin?); and, last but not least, all-timers as great or greater than the ones pictured (Prince, Springsteen, Stephen Stills, Johnny Ramone, Ry Cooder, Alvin Lee (the first live concert I ever saw was Ten Years After, w/Alvin Lee), and so many others. Have at it, folks.
