Johnny Ramone was raised in the New York borough of Queens and went on to found one of the most influential rock bands ever. He, unlike many others, never strayed from the attitude of his blue collar roots and was imbued with that angry young man spirit that would characterize both his public and private persona. Through all the madness of the time .Johnny kept his band constantly focused and moving forward to the ultimate accolade; taking their place in history as the inventors of punk rock. The Ramones had their official induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2002, only 2 years before Johnny succumbed to cancer and became the last of the three founding members to pass away. Commando: The Autobiography of Johnny Ramone ($12) is a revealing and inspiring memoir told in Johnny’s own interminable style and is a fascinating insight into one of rocks most enigmatic characters.
About Lee King
I live in a great city outside of Philadelphia and run Muted in my free time. Being close to a number of large metropolitan areas gives me a lot of inspiration for menswear and gear. Originally from Pittsburgh as well as a Suburban Detroit transplant I went to Michigan State University and spent most of my career managing global IT services for Pharmaceuticals. Besides mens clothing I enjoy, bonsai, my family, dogs and hanging by the pool.
