Hey Ho Let's Go: Marky Ramone Talks Ramones With HPR's ATC

Dec 18, 2015

The Ramones changed rock forever. From the counting off of songs, to the pioneering down-stroke of Johnny Ramone's guitar playing, to their unique fashion statement, the impact of the Ramones is hard to overstate. Punk Rock Blitzkrieg: My Life As A Ramone is drummer Marky Ramone's recent exploration of the critically influential band and the fifteen years he spent with them. He spoke to HPR All Things Considered Host Dave Lawrence about it.
