I've been waffling back and forth between listening to a ton of the Ramones to no Ramones at all and back again since I heard the news that Tommy Ramone died last week.  

The Ramones are one of my all time favorite bands and their influence on modern music can't be dismissed or probably even fully appreciated.  It's espescially amazing since they never quite gained mainstream popularity despite the incredible talent and sheer volume of their catalog.  Just about everyone knows who they were and most people have at least heard one or two of their most popular songs (Blitzkrieg Bop, I wanna be sedated and Rockaway beach for instance) and that's despite recieving painfully sparse radio play and never really achieving record topping sales.  Even with their lack of mass market appeal they still manage permeate the musical texture for years afterward by being direct influences on many genres from punk rock to speed metal.  

So now the four founding members of the Ramones are no longer with us.  Farewell Dee Dee, Joey, Johnny and now Tommy.  The world is a lesser place without you in it but thanks for the music you left behind.

And weird fact about me, I have a Schott Perfecto leather motorcycle jacket.  I've had it for many years in fact.  What most people don't know or realize is that I bought it well before I bought my first motorcycle because it was the jacket that was the defacto uniform of the Ramones.
