    Here's a clip of Dee Dee's ex-wife Vera discussing the incident that could've led to the Ramones "curse".

    Ramones Autographs/Memorabilia

    OK I love the Ramones! I was lucky enough to see them a few times in the late 70s/early 80s. I have quite a bit of interesting Ramones things, some I will upload pics of here. Signed Picture, signed Albums, a signed concert-used Ramones Pick (signed on both sides, Johnny on 1, Marky on the other), Signed Rock N Roll High School Program, Ramones 1977 Promo Letter Opener (seen on the cover of 'Ramones Mania').

    Sorry for the poor quality of some of these (the letter opener and pick) I have these in a glass display cabinet so I scanned in paperwork pictures that I have on them. (Images Updated 2011-01-18)

    I also have 2 leather jackets and 1 jean jacket all signed by them (and Monte and Arturo Vega), Dee Dee's Personal Leather Fringed Vest and Dee Dee's hand written lyrics to one of his songs "Never Again")

    Pat that is so Cool. Your so lucky. I never got to see them. I visited Johnny and Dee Dee's Graves at Hollywood Forever this Past November. The Ramones will always be one of my Favorite Bands of my youth. Even Now in my 40's when I hear thier music I can't sit still I gotta move.

    They were Great thier will never be duplicates and so sorry to see that they are nearly all gone now.

    Next Sunday they will be getting a Special Lifetime Achievement Grammy. Actually Marky, Tommy, Joey, Johnny and Dee Dee will be receiving it. (not CJ or Richie).
    Tommy and Marky will accept it prior to the televised ceremony, but during the tv show they will announce it and the camera will pan to them.

    The Ramones have been my fave band since I was 15 and I was lucky enough to see them twice when they played in Australia. I adore Joey (named one of my sons after him!!) and was lucky enough to see CJ when he first was starting out as he is such an amazing part of the band. I like DeeDee but CJ was great. I hate that he gets no recognition in things like the Grammy because he may not have been an original member but he made a great contribution and it was widely acknowldeged at the time that he really helped prolong the Ramones after DeeDee left.

    On the Joey and Johhny not talking issue I am team Joey all the way. Johnny was one of the best guitarists in the world but what he did to Joey was wrong and cruel.

    The Ramones are my all time fave band since I was 15 and I was lucky enough to get to see them several times in Australia. Live they were just amazing. I saw them not long after CJ joined and he was great. Joey is my all time fave though he was just unbelievable and I cannot believe it has been almost ten years since he died. I called one of my sons Joey!

    I hate that CJ gets no recognition from the Hall of Fame and teh Grammy people as he was an important part of the band and the rest of the band agree judging by their interviews. He brought new life and youth and as much as I love DeeDee his heart wasn't in the Ramones at the end. He wrote some of their best songs though to this day Pet Sematary is my favourite of their songs.

    Regarding Joey and Johnny I can understand why they didn't talk look at what Johnny did to him! There are things you don't do and to me one of them is steal another persons girlfriend and lie about it for a long time. Johnny is one of the all time great guitarists but what he did to Joey was not cool.

    I was at the last UK show at Brixton Academy, London 1996. Was great, fast and loud, like on the Loco Live album. Towards the end though the Marshalls were so overheated and saturated that the sound was a bit of a mush. That never seemed to happen about two years before that at the London Astoria. Different venues and acoustics etc.. though. Both were fab shows.

    Cool

    Joey used to frequent The Scrap Bar later in his life so he could avoid all the gawking people who used to hound him whenever he went to CBGB'S. Saw him there plenty of times in the 80'S. But only had the privileged to speak to him once for about 5 minutes. Great Person and very approachable. ( Bought me a beer too ).

    my 5 year old has discovered the Ramones and loves them. I have seen rock n roll high school 20 times this week! I have always loved them. when we were kids, my little sister and I used to think they were all brothers!! i have a metal ramones lunchbox with cartoon ramones on the front. it had a thermos, but my husband decided it was a good idea to take the thermos to work with him for coffee and its gone forever . leahna told me that Joey is her favorite and she got on the bus this morning yelling "Hey Ho Lets Go"! I'm so glad that she'd rather listen to them then that Bieber character. She now wants a Ramones t shirt like mine, but do they make them in 5t? And where can I find one for a child?

    I got a onesie & a toddler size at Hot Topic. Which t completely unfair bc for decades I combed 100s of thrift stores & music stores for Ramones mercy. I read every Goldmine magazine. Nadda It was fair for a young Ramones fan growing up.

    To my Father. Even though you have crossed the plane, you will always be with me.
    You were not just my Father, but my hero. My life has been a poor attempt to be like you
    You taught me music, vocals, and how to fight. I can only hope I am half the man you are
    When I close my eyes I can see you. And finally, Thank you Dad. for everything.

    I enjoyed the band, but I think if they were alive today
    they would be fans of Donald Trump.
