Tommy Ramone (1952 - 2014)

Sad news that Tommy (Erdeli) Ramone has passed away in Ridegewood, Queens.  Tommy was the last surviving member of the original Ramones and a crucial element in their vision and the sound that revolutionised music in the late 70s.

The Ramones were one of the very few bands who truly changed everything, influencing a whole generation to learn three chords and start a band of their own.  I can't imagine what my adolescent years would have been like without them - and I'm sure I'm not the only one.

This wonderful tune is from their debut album in 1976.  Tommy Ramone RIP.
