Joey Ramone

Today would have been Joey Ramone’s 67th birthday.  Born Jeffrey Hyman in 1951, he was co-founder of one of the greatest punk bands of all time, the Ramones.  He died from lymphoma in 2001.

I had the opportunity to see the the Ramones perform at Marietta Georgia’s Strand Theater. Here’s a photo from the show.  I shot it with a Pentax K-1000 on high speed film, hence the grain.  The negative is 35 years old.  Overall, I guess it’s not too bad.

My wife says I make stuff up. While that's probably true I'm going to stick to stuff that's mostly true.
