Very sorry to hear of the passing, on July 11th, 2014, of Tommy Ramone, after a struggle with bile duct cancer. He was 62.
Today’s soundtrack: Those first four Ramones albums, as well as the Replacements’ TIM and Redd Kross’s NEUROTICA.
Today’s screening: COLOR ME IMPRESSED: A FILM ABOUT THE REPLACEMENTS, THE RAMONES: IT’S ALIVE, and END OF THE CENTURY.
Today’s book club: ON THE ROAD WITH THE RAMONES and Dee Dee’s tomes.
Today’s quote: “I’d give Tommy a lot of the credit for our look. He explained to me that Middle America wasn’t going to look good in glitter. Glitter is fine if you’re the perfect size for clothes like that. But if you’re even five pounds overweight, it looks ridiculous, so it wouldn’t be something everyone could relate to.” - Johnny Ramone
