RIP: Tommy Ramone 1949 – 2014…

I’m a huge fan of the Ramones. Always have been. They’ve always been my favorite. Tommy Ramone who is a drummer and the last founding members of the Ramones have just passed away. Tommy was the big inspiration for the band as he was the one who helped them write, “Blitzkrieg Bop” and “I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend” which are both killer songs.

I love the Ramones. They were a pretty serious band and took no shit. They took what they did seriously. I love how they wanted to keep all of their songs short and simple. When they play live, they don’t waste time in between songs either — they play a song one after another.

While all members of the Ramones were great, Johnny will always be my favorite, though.

RIP Tommy.
