So long then, The Ramones...


War Hero
Tommy Ramone (born Erdélyi Tamás) last of the original Ramones, has died.

Joey Ramone died at 49 from lymphoma. The Dee Dee Ramone, 50 when he died of a smack overdose. Then Johnny Ramone, 55 when he died of prostate cancer. Now Tommy, getting to 62, dying of bile duct cancer yesterday.

Forget insufferably priggish twats like Coldplay and U2; these guys were the real deal.

One, Chew, Three, Four!
