The last of the Big Four is gone. He was the sane one, had a giant impact on their sound and was the last Ramone standing.


Think i'm going to ride the G train today.

He also produced a fantastic album for the Replacements



including this version of Can't Hardly Wait, which came out on a later albums with a horn section.

NY Daily News Obit.

Quote:
He created a beat that punched punk from behind.

Tommy Ramone's drumming — which slammed through the first, and best, three Ramones albums — operated with a jackhammer reliability and force. His rhythms provided the perfect mirror of Johnny Ramone's thrashing guitar, Dee Dee's throbbing bass and Joey's cries of "hey-oh-let's-go."

Tommy's deadpan rhythm locked into the band's sound like a dead bolt. He laced it with crashing cymbals that had the effect of glass shattering against a wall. The drummer also co-produced the second and third Ramones' albums, "Leaving Home" and "Rocket To Russia," both released in 1977.

Marky is still alive and he had a radio show a couple of years back. I think maybe it's still going on.

But yes, Tommy was the last of the original bandmembers.

Yeah, you wonder what was on that van

I just checked and Arturo who designed their logo also died of cancer at 65. He used to live in loft around the corner from CBGB's which was also the Ramones practice space. Who knows what the loft was used for before he lived there.

So is Richie and CJ and even Elvis Ramone, but none of them were original members and none of them had any near Tommy's influence on rock and roll.

Speaking of Marky being a dick by the way, is book would be out by now if he didn't keep firing his ghostwriters. He would have been primed to cash in on the publicity of Tommy's death.
