Before I truly “got” The Clash, the greatest rock and roll band in history, I was a major Pinhead. I loved The Ramones, and was known to listen to them for hours at a time. Drove my buddies nuts.
I don’t think I’ve ever posted on them before, and this is a great way to start. This is the band at their best site, old CBGBs, at the peak of their powers. And the best thing about a Mones show is that every song is less than three minutes, so they get to all the hits!
Dig it. Here’s set one. Set two to come. A few tastes and zip.
P.S.: Any true fans can guess why I titled this post “Who Are These Ramon-ees?” Hint: The answer might come by ear mail.http://www.blogger.com/img/gl.link.gif
