The first time I heard The Ramones I was 12 years old supposed to be doing homework at my dad’s house. Snagging CDs from his collection during “homework” time was really where my obsession with music flourished. He belonged to one of those Columbia House “10 CDs for a Penny Clubs.” Grabbing the “Ramones Mania” CD for the first time and putting it on was truly a religious experience. Growing up it was Guns and Roses, Nirvana, Tom Petty, all the mainstream-ish post grunge stuff. Everything changed from then on. Now that I had discovered punk rock, I bought a bass guitar the next summer and haven’t looked back since.
RIP Tommy Ramone.
