April 15, 2001 – R.I.P Joey Ramone

Joey Ramone passed away this afternoon at 2.40pm, in a hospital in New York City where he was being treated for cancer. Joey’s loving family was by his bedside. In this moment of pain and sorrow, let’s find comfort in the words of the King of Punk himself: “Life’s a gas, Life’s a gas, Life’s a gas, a gas, Oh Yeah! Life’s a gas, Life’s a gas, Life’s a gas, a gas, Oh Yeah! So Don’t be sad ’cause I’ll be there – Don’t be sad at all” – Joey Ramone
