Joey Ramone 1951-2001

Now, before you move this to another forum I'll explain why this goes here. The Ramones have influences U2 so much. Not only was In a Little While the last song he heard, Bono was one of the last people he talked to. I think this post should be a tribute to him and The Ramones.

Cool idea! Yeah, The Ramones were a HUGE influence on U2 in the early days. They've gotten me curious about them. I'll admit that don't know much about them apart from "I Wanna Be Sedated" and "I Remember" you, but those are both great songs.

Well, I think repeated topics are inevitable, as new people are always joining and whatnot.

if we did this on the anniversaries of everyone's death, that's all we'd have.

i know you weren't here a year ago and i'm not slamming you or anything, i'm just saying...ugh never mind, no one cares anyway.

I agree-they were, and good post too.

As we all know, this was the song Joey was listening to when he died.

I'm in total agreement with you Screaming Flower. I have the Elevation Boston tape on the telly, and Bono remark about how U2 looked up to the Ramones,and when Joey was dying in the hospital, Bono felt honored that Joey was listening to In A Little While.

He did? I wasn't aware of this. Man, I can just picture him lying there in bed listening to "In a Little While" and then dying after the song ended. So sad...

Rock n Roll High Scholl is one of my favourites. What suprises me is that about 75% of my school hasn't even heard of the Ramones!

Hi Ravenstar
I'd not long finished "rock n roll" high school and was working with a band that played Ramones covers back in 1980-1 BC (Before Ckids) Such fond fond memories.

In a little while.....


PS: I was in a doctor's waiting room the other day and was browsing at the bible they had there. I found lyrics from In a Little While and Sinead O'Connor's Black Boy's on Mopeds within a page of one another. It was cool.

you should maybe try to avoid these kinds of threads in the future. then you might not come off so negative.

I just received "The Ramones Anthology" Double disk in the mail today. It is great. Joey is great. My biggest regret is not seeing them during my freshman year of college in '95....RIP
