    Thanks for that. Cool stuff. Biggest surprise is the backstage photo with Elton John.

    I want a Joey Ramone bobble head.

    Saw The Ramones 5 a few times live at The Mud Club in NYC and The Jag in East Hampton. Once, I ran into Joey Ramone at a party at The Water Club on July 4th.
    I faking' love The Ramones

    I would have killed to see the early Ramones play at CBGBs in the 70s.

    Commando is one of the most ass kicking rock and roll songs of all-time:

    I saw them five times. They didn't take well to large halls. Anti stadium if there ever was a group like that. Best two were at The Fast Lane in Asbury Park, pure Springsteen country. It was like being enveloped by the pure white heat essence of rock. Small place, low ceilings, very much like that place in Mass. that over a hundred people died in in that fire. Thank god the Ramones weren't big on pyro.

    It was the Station Night Club, and it was in Rhode Island....just to clarify.

    And I too love the Ramones.

    Unfortunately there was a TV news crew there to do a report on "night club safety". Camera man was backing up, filming the people as they tried to get out but was actually getting in the way. Wound up going to jail for it too.
