Marky Ramone Shares Memories About Late Ramones Bandmates Joey, Johnny + Dee Dee
We were recently given the opportunity to sit down with Ramones legend Marky Ramone for an in-depth video interview. We spoke with the drummer for over 30 minutes, and we’d like to share this unique part of our conversation with Marky where he reveals one thing the world doesn’t know about each of his late bandmates — Joey, Johnny and Dee Dee Ramone.
The Ramones are one of the greatest punk rock bands of all time, with the band having been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2002. Tragically, singer Joey Ramone passed away from lymphoma on April 15, 2001; bassist Dee Dee Ramone died from a heroin overdose on June 5, 2002; and guitarist Johnny Ramone succumbed to prostate cancer on Sept. 15, 2004.
We asked Marky Ramone to reflect on each of his fallen bandmates in this portion of our exclusive video interview. Check back with Loudwire soon for more from Marky on his upcoming tour with Andrew W.K. and the reissue of of the albums he recorded with his early band Dust, among other topics.
