The Ramones Live in 79


Tonight it’s a full-on late 70’s punk rockin’ assault, as the Ramones rock Northwestern University. Coming to you from way back in October of 1979, this is a supercharged set from Joey, Johnny, Dee Dee and Marky. It’s quite shitty to think that three out of those four are no longer with us. Johnny died of prostate cancer in 2004; Dee Dee died of “heroin toxicity” in 2002; and Joey’s been gone since April of 2001, when he died from lymphoma.

So in memory of the punk pioneers (they formed in 1974, and were a heavy influence on the British Punk ‘revolution’ of 1976, the Clash and the Sex Pistols among them), turn this one up loud and enjoy.

  3. Wow, The Ramones played at friggin’ Cahn Auditorium? I’ve seen some fairly shitty campus musical revues on that stage. I even think everyone’s favorite deceased detective Jerry Orbach performed on that stage.

    Northwestern, not known for its punk fans.
