Tommy Ramone, the last original Ramone, dies aged 62
Drummer of seminal New York punk band played on their first three – and best – albums

Forty years of the Ramones – in pictures


Tommy Ramone, the last remaining original member of the New York punk band Ramones, has died of cancer at the age of 62 at his home in the city.

The manager-turned-drummer, and then producer of the band, was a Hungarian immigrant, born Erdélyi Tamás in Budapest, who came to the US in 1957.

Heavily influenced by 60s girl groups and the New York Dolls, Ramones formed in 1974, and were the first band from the underground punk scene in New York to make an album. Ramones, legend has it, was recorded in six days and cost $6,400 to make. It saw the first outing of their signature "1-2-3-4" introduction yelled out at the start of each song.

Their first album sold poorly in the US – although it was finally certified gold last month, 38 years after its release – but became underground gold for the UK's nascent punk scene. Their gigs in London at the Roundhouse and Dingwalls in July 1976 were credited by Joe Strummer of the Clash, John Lydon of the Sex Pistols and Captain Sensible of the Damned as pivotal – proving that their fledgling bands, too, might get out of the garage and on to a bigger stage.

Rest in peace Tommy. He was the brains, joey was the heart, Dee Dee was the soul and Johnny was the muscle. One of the absolute greatest bands of all time.
Here is (in my opinion) the BEST live show ever recorded of the Ramones.

The Ramones were a band that needed to be heard, seen and felt live. That is when they were at their best.
Anyone remember when Phil Specter freaking held them captive at gun point while producing End of the Century?

The living members are Richie, CJ, and Markie.

I heard them talk about this in an interview. They still seemed to appreciate what Spector did for their careers.

Damone Ramone: A Rock And Roll Betrayal

This book contains offensive language, perverse situations, and difficult truths.

The Ramone family pariah exposes everything in a shocking tell-all. Damone Ramone reveals who was really behind both the Ramones and punk rock writ large.

The unsung prodigy finally has his day. Mr. Ramone composed a classical composition in 1969 that his brothers plagiarized. The stolen composition was reconstituted as Ramones, Leave Home, Rocket to Russia, and Road to Ruin. These recordings changed music forever, and Mr. Ramone has not been credited or remunerated in any way.

Furthermore, his brothers have propagated a false family history since 1974 in order to cover up their crime.

The Ramones were in fact brothers, and their supposed “real” birth names were fictitious. Mr. Ramone reveals the true Ramone family history from the old country to the Fort Tilden Beach home where they grew up.

He details his struggle against a cruel propaganda machine that ostracized and exiled him for decades in order to deprive him of credit and punish him for his genius.

In time for the 40th Anniversary of Punk, Mr. Ramone’s book will rewrite punk history, thus ending an empire of lies. Accounts shall be settled and justice shall be restored.

The prophet, the poet, the drummer, the soldier.


You'll forever be a gem among the gold.

Ramones, truly a god send. The music helped so much in need. Cherubs in a rage.
Helping Angels flap their wings once again.

May they all play in the lights.


I was a huge ramones fan.. Helped me get through life...even today they are needed in my life. Joey Ramones voice is forever youthful and reminds you were all young.. Even at death.

The first concert I've ever been to was a Ramones tour, with only marky Ramone. Man how old love to see them all in their prime.

The gems of new york
The sparkle of the darkness
Out they came, playing
In they go, now is sighing..

Thanks for the music boys.
