KALX radio on 10th year since Joey passed on

Was listening to KALX radio in Berkeley today and the afternoon DJ, Tiger Lilly played a half hour of songs by and about the Ramones in tribute to Joey Ramone who passed away 10 years ago today. It was a great tribute to Joey and it was good to see that college radio hasn't forgotten the Ramones and their influence on music long after their breakup and subsequent demises of Joey, Johnny and Dee Dee. Thanks Tiger Lilly that made my day. I liked the instrumental from LAMF too, I'll be tuning in to your show for more good stuff.

You can listen live at the link: KALX 90.7 FM
Tiger Lilly's show is described as "A manic, sleep-deprived stew of '70s punk, glam, rockabilly, '50s rocknroll, doowop, '60s girl groups, pub rock, garage, punkrocknroll, and whatever else provokes riots on your own personal dance floor."
Sounds good to me! Tune in and give her a listen, you may learn something new too.

Anyway, here are a few videos from Youtube to remember Joey and The Ramones in their heyday:

Dee Dee Solo

Video of Dee Dee from 2001 performing Born to Lose, Chinese Rock, and Pills. Well lit and good quality video. Most Dee Dee vids are of pretty marginal quality. He's really hammering on that bass!

Lifetime Achievement Award Update

Sire Records Founder Seymour Stein on 2011 Lifetime Achievement Award recipients Ramones and their pioneering punk rock:

Ramones Lifetime Achievement Award


Ramones to receive Lifetime Achievement Grammy Award

The organizers of the Grammy Awards have announced that The Ramones will be receiving a lifetime achievement in February. They will receive their statuettes at an event in Los Angeles on February 12, a day before the 53rd annual Grammy Awards ceremony is held. The Ramones will join Julie Andrews of The Sound of Music, Dolly Parton and Roy Haynes in the ceremony. The Ramones are notable in the category as they are the only lifetime achievement honourees who have never received a traditional Grammy award.

Sadly, Joey, Johnny and Dee Dee are not alive to receive the honor.
