Post-teenage lobotomy

I mean, this cannot be happening. Johnny Ramone has died.

First it was Joey, then Dee Dee. I hope to hell Tommy's well.

I mean, I expected the bands I grew up with to get old, because I was getting old. The Ramones were supposed to spit in the eye of all that maturity crap. Three chords, no waiting, glue, then Carbona, and we're gonna beat on the brat, and whaddaya think of that?

I think I wanna be sedated.

Flags have been half-mast here since Joey died. They'll go back up when Keith Richards finally realizes he's been dead for years.

Somehow the passing of 3 of the Ramones is much harder for me to deal with than, say, the death of Elvis or other much-more famous figures.
