A case for a hyphenated name…
I’ll let others wax eloquent over the rapid depletion of our National Ramone Reserves, but for some reason I found this quite amusing:
Johnny Ramone, guitarist and co-founder of the seminal punk band “The Ramones,” has died. He was 55.
Ramone died in his sleep Wednesday afternoon at his Los Angeles home surrounded by friends and family, his publicist said. He had battled prostate cancer for five years, and was hospitalized in June at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
Along with his wife, Linda Cummings, Johnny Ramone was surrounded at his death by friends Eddie and Jill Vedder, and Rob and Sherrie Zombie.
For the record, Rob Zombie’s real name is Rob Cummings, but Sherrie Cummings is so…Target shopper.
