We're the mighty fighting Hawks!

Utopian Moth loves the Ramones.

Johnny Ramone is buried at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery, one of the prettiest spots in LA. Dee Dee is here too, on the other side of this lake, with a slightly less conspicuous marker. Which is interesting as he is considered the most prolific songwriter of the group. But Johnny is seen as the drill-sergeant of the Ramones, the one who ran the ship pretty tight, or as tight as he ever could. If you want to get an insight into the history and personalities of incredible band, watch the 2003 documentary "End of the Century: The Story of The Ramones". This is one of the best (and surprisingly moving) music docos I've ever seen.

Until tomorrow....Go Hawks, and thank goodness for The Ramones!
