Lamb of God vocalist Randy Blythe took to his Instagram page, where he memorialized Tommy Ramone, going as far as to declare, "No Ramones = no lamb of god."
Tommy Ramone, the last surviving founding member of the legendary punk band The Ramones, has passed away at the age of 62.
Today (May 19) would have been Joey Ramone's 63rd birthday. The iconic Ramones singer / songwriter passed away in 2001 after a seven-year battle with lymphoma, but he left hundreds of legendary songs and thousands of performances in the annals of punk rock history.
As Andrew W.K. so perfectly pointed out in the beginning of our conference call with both himself and Ramones drummer Marky Ramone, we had created a "party line." During this unique conversation with punk rock's new dynamic duo, we spoke about everything concerning Marky Ramone's newest Blitzkrieg lineup, featuring Andrew W.K. on vocals.
Legendary Ramones drummer Marky Ramone and party rocker Andrew W.K. have been touring the world together this year for Marky's well-known 'Blitzkrieg' project. Having taken many forms throughout the years, Blitzkrieg's stint with Andrew W.K. on vocals has no doubt been its most exciting incarnation to date, and during an exclusive interview with both Marky and Andrew, the two revealed to us an interest in creating original material together.
Before legendary Ramones drummer Marky Ramone was a punk rocker, he was Marc Bell and he kept the beat for New York hard rock / heavy metal band Dust. As one of the first American heavy metal acts, Dust released two solid albums, 'Dust' and 'Hard Attack.' Forty years later, the two records have just been re-released, and we snagged an interview with Marky Ramone to chat about all things Dust.
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.
One of the more unusual pairings in rock music has just been created for an upcoming tour. Party rocker Andrew W.K. has accepted an invitation from legendary Ramones drummer Marky Ramone to sing for the stickman's Marky Ramone's Blitzkrieg outfit. This means that Andrew W.K. will fill the shoes of the late great Joey Ramone as Blitzkrieg pummel through more than 30 Ramones classics per night!
