I remember the first time I heard the Ramones, I was in 8th grade and my friend and I were talking about all this music that we were into. He then pulled out a Ramone's album and we just sat there in the lunch room listening to the cd in silence.
I was blown away, since that time, I've had more experiences that somehow involve the Ramones in different ways where I attach the band to the event.
I just imagine Tommy as quietly playing puppet master of the Ramones, pulling the strings and making sure that everyone was eating right.
What experiences have you had with the Ramones? Do the deaths of musicians affect you or bring back memories of their music and how it affected you?
