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.
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.
A massive auction is happening for any Ramones fan with some extra cash to burn. Possessions from late, legendary vocalist Joey Ramone that include part of his record collection, some of his clothes, handwritten lyrics, his rolodex and even his long-expired passport are being auctioned off.
