CJ and Johnny Ramone Born - 1965/1948

Monday, October 8, 2007

"C Jay" and Johnny Ramone share this day, October 8th, as their birthdays, in 1965 and 1948 respectively.

The Ramones were arguably the first punk rock group, reportedly inspiring bands "the Clash" and "The Damned" to form and start playing within days of seeing the first Ramones British concert, held on July 4, 1976.

After forming in Forest Hills, Queens, New York, in 1974, they performed 2,263 concerts, touring virtually nonstop for 22 years. In 1996, after a tour with the Lollapalooza music festival, the band went on a brief nightclub tour and then disbanded.

The Ramones were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on March 18, 2002.
