B.W. has a picture of the Ramones in 1976 (photo by Bob Gruen). I'd like to think that's the 7 Train, I'd be riding it meself 7 years later.

I know, right. Can still remember when that first LP hit. Wow!

Live fast, die young. It's the rock 'n' roll way.

He was awesome. As I've said elsewhere, I think his work as a producer will eclipse his work as a drummer. Not only did he produce the early Ramones albums, he produced "Tim" by the Replacements.

The music of my college years, and much after. In fact, the only reason it isn't playing in my car now is the CD wore out.

Yet the Beatles' rhythm section is still alive. Who'd've thunk it?

A crank weighs in, too.

And what, Charlie Haden is chopped liver? (Well, he more or less is now, I guess.)

Yup. Passing of an age. Glad you and I remember it
