    Marky wasn't an original member. Tommy was the last one.

    If you listen closely you can here the Ramones in the beginning of this video.

    Boy, they all died young. When Pete Townsed said "I hope I die before I get old", they were listening.

    And Ritchie.. and Elvis.. but no. Nobody counts them.

    Marky is as close to an original member that's left, but he was not.

    Yep.
    I only saw the Ramones once but it was the original guys.
    They were on tour, came through Memphis and played at a former Midtown theater then called P.O.E.T.S. Music Hall for all of 15 minutes then they got back on the bus.
    In that 15 minutes they played EVERY song off their 1st 2 albums.
    I couldn't stop laughing- the fuckers were comedy magic.

    I'm currently reading this one. It focuses more on Joey but is a really good look at their history by someone who was there from the very beginning (and actually was in bands with Johnny and Tommy before Joey was).

    I read this one years ago and remember it being really good. Boy, was Dee Dee a fucked up individual. Actually, with the exception of Tommy, they all were.
