LETTER TO JAPANESE FANS FROM THE RAMONES

 

Hello friends, We like to take this opportunity to send our greetings to all our fans in Japan. We always enjoyed very much touring this country of energetic nice people and delicious food. We want to thank you all very much for coming to our shows during our years of touring, and for being here now. You our fans and friends, make it all possible. We also want to express our gratitude to Smash Corporation for their support then and for their support now, this tribute is an honor and a reminder of the feelings of friendship and respect that the Ramones and their friends in Japan have for each other. We The Ramones miss visiting this exiting country. We are retired now, but even if we lost our dear "brother" and lead singer Joey, the spirit of Punk lives on, and it will continue to live and grow as long as there are young people willing to be themselves, and to make music that is direct and sincere without unnecessary distractions. The best Rock n' Roll was always fast fun and furious, and that's exactly what Punk Rock is all about. Thank you for keeping us in your heart. We remember you too. HEY HO LET'S GO, AND HAVE A GOOD TIME Johnny Ramone, DeeDee Ramone CJ Ramone, Marky Ramone. The Ramones.
