Ramones Reunion Complete! Latest Death Unites Original Quartet in Afterlife
ETHEREAL CITY, Erehwon (FNS) Ramones fans are rejoicing at the news of drummer Tommy Ramone’s death announced Friday, July 11, 2014. The drummer and original founder died after a long bout with cancer of the bile duct. Tommy (real name Erdely Tamas) is the last of the original founding four to pass on to the next world.
Following a world tour and farewell concert in 1996, the group disbanded. Within three and a half years lead singer Joey, bassist Dee Dee and guitarist Johnny were dead leaving Tommy as the last surviving original band member. Anxious fans spent the next decade and a half awaiting last Friday’s news. Says long time fan Moe Rahn, “This is awesome. Now they’re all together. I just know they’re playing ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll High School’ somewhere really cool. Or maybe really hot. Who knows?”
