The Ramones...

Johnny Ramone is dead. That's a good obituary, I think I learned more there about the Ramones than I'd picked up anywhere else. The author seems to think the Ramones sparked the european punk explosion, which is opposite of what I'd thought was conventional wisdom; that eurpoean imports drove the US punk 'scene'. Who knows? I enjoyed their music, and I hope I'll always remember my father spooling up the reel to reel with "Do you Remember Rock and Roll Radio." Back when pirating music involved a record, a patch cable and a spool of tape.

Speaking of that, do you know they have a laser record player now? They've had it for a long time, just nobody buys them. Behold!
