On the BBC as I type. One of the great American bands.

Do they get respect in the States ?

Not as much as they deserve. I was at this concert. I was working in the desert at the time so it was a fairly short trip.

Tidy, I never got the chance to see them, you are very lucky. But I remember hearing them for the first time and thinking "wtf is this". One of Americas gifts to the world.

Excellent little article about them from Rolling Stone you may wanna check out. Did you know?

'...The Ramones formed in 1974 after the foursome graduated or left high school in Forest Hills, New York. The original lineup featured Joey on drums, Dee Dee sharing guitar with Johnny, and Tommy as manager, but they soon settled on their recording setup. Their name and pseudonym came via Paul McCartney, who had briefly called himself Paul Ramon back when the Beatles were the Silver Beatles....

Ramones are still played on main-stream radio, but they only play Blitzkrieg Bop and I Wanna Be sedated

I hear 'rock n roll high school' occasionally. however the syndicated radio program with steven van zandt...

'little steven's underground garage' plays a lot of them.
