    MutteringJohn's the grim reaper of Dawgs. All of the depressing threads of dead people are exclusively made by him. :c

    Cause of death was reported as embarrassment after he heard the Howard Stern planned to remake "Rock and Roll High School".

    Thank God someone said this. This guy was not involved with one of the greatest American bands of all time. I really don't think you could point at any one person and say that they "founded" the Ramones, they were just a couple of goons in the right place at the right time. Gabba Gabba Hey.

    Man, I'm still pissed that I missed them at Lolapalooza here in Wa. State. I was in high school and I had to work washing dishes at Red Lobster....if I had any sense, I would've ditched my shift on this shitty summer job I was going to quit anyway and gone to the show. Fucking stupid on my end. They broke up a year or two after that and then all of the core members died one after the other within a couple of years. R.I.P. What a kick ass band.

    Phil Ramone worked with Paul McCartney so it is entirely possible that Paul came up with the name from Phil Ramone.

    WTF?

    Everyone knows that the band "The Ramones" was created by founding member Howie Ramone.
