Sad to see you go

Tommy, the last surviving original member of the Ramones has passed away.

R.I.P. Tommy. The Ramones music and legacy will never die!

The Ramones music is indelibly etched in my mind. I was a big Ramones fan back in the 70's and saw them several times (including seeing them with their original line up which included Thomas Erdelyi). Tommy was actually an Hungarian Jew.

Three out of the four originals dying of cancer (the 4th Dee Dee was drug related).

Hey Ho Let's Go

Glad to see you go, go, go, go good bye

No chance of a reunion tour then,

Well there are still Marky, Elvis, CJ and Richie Ramone left but three of them are drummers

Q. What’s the difference between a drum machine and a drummer?

A. You only have to punch information into a drum machine once.

ITHANKAYOU!

I once chatted to a roadie who had toured with the Ramones. He said what a great bunch they were, really funny and down to earth.

Then after Joeys untimely death all the stories come out about how Johnny hated Joey and vice versa, all the petty jealousies, the battle to be the leader etc etc.

Made me sad to be honest.

Yeah that's how I feel about the rift between Hugh Cornwell and JJ Burnel, all very petty and pointless and immature.

Heyho heard the news about Tommy on Saturday, soon after we'd watched The Stranglers and shortly after he'd noticed a tweet by a publisher that a certain book about The Stranglers, called 'Peaches', was doing really well in Amazon's charts, hitting number 174 in overall book sales.  

So it was a good day all round but quite emotional too, on the quiet.
