Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 128 People

    In recent years I'd been thinking how it was

    kind of surreal that 3/4 of the original Ramones had already departed this life ....I'd also been thinking it was more surreal both Johnny and Joey died due to cancer ....I'd also been thinking it was ponderous for Dee Dee to OD on heroin, in light of another punk bassist, Sid...

    Feel Blessed to Have Met Them

    I had the opportunity to see them three times in concert (I still have a pick that Johnny threw into the audience), and "met" them during the CJ days.  Good times!
