They're All Gone Now

Tommy Ramone (Thomas Erdelyi), one of the co-founders of The Ramones, is gone. Now all of the original members have passed. Voice, guitar, bass, drums. How stream-lined. How primal. How utterly passé in this post-post-modern auto-tuned world was his band. Tommy was the original drummer, of course, in what must now be acknowledged as one of the 6-7 greatest foursomes to ever grace a stage anywhere in this solar system. Goodbye, Tommy.
