Johnny Ramone of the Ramones by David Corio

The Ramones guitarist Johnny Ramone by photographer David Corio, Hammersmith Odeon, London 1980

Photographers notes:  One-two-three-faww! I think this picture captured the persona of Johnny Ramone in requisite Ramones T-shirt, guitar slung impossibly low, drainpipe jeans plastered on skinny long legs all capped by a contemptuous sneer. Johnny Ramone’s super-fast buzzsaw guitar had a huge impact on the punk scene and he could make a two-minute song sound like an epic.

The Ramones were synonymous with CBGB’s, the legendary New York club on The Bowery that kick-started the careers of many US punk bands. With such credentials I was taken aback to hear Johnny paying tribute to George W Bush at The Ramones’ induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2002 and not even mentioning lead singer Joey Ramone, who had recently passed away
