This Moment In Rock & Roll…

The Ramones. This is the day they played their first show. It must have been easy to get a show there back then, LOL. They became the founders of Punk Rock w/o even trying. While the sounds were out there and even the look, they brought all together with a sold but classic arrangement of established Rock & Roll. At the time of their lead singer’s death, Joey Ramone, their popularity had started waning somewhat. His death, as usual with most Artist, signaled a huge resurgence in the the love for their music. Their contribution to Music has a whole can not be denied and this writer thanks them. It was my Punk Rock Band’s battle cry “If The Ramones Can Do It, so can we!”- and we did, and so did millions of Guitar Players and bands, influenced by The Ramones.

Carry On… Mm
