He's Left Home

Tommy Ramone
Rest In Peace

I only got to see the Ramones live once: I had just published an interview with the band in my 'zine (and had them on the cover), and as such brought two stacks to the show. I was already giddy being on the band's guest-list and finally getting to see them live, but looking out to see a sea of faces reading my rag before one of the greatest and most important American bands hit the stage was a feeling that's hard to describe, though also one I'll never forget... Those first three LPs are game-changers, and it's hard to believe that all of those responsible for creating them are gone.
