    NPR's "All Songs Considered" Blog has posted a classic Ramones show, in its entirety, set to old Japanese monster movie video. The band sounds smokin' the recording is excellent. "The Ramones Live: 26 Songs in 54 minutes" Here's the link:http://www.npr.org/blogs/allsongs/2011/04...

    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!
