Anyone with a taste for punk rock will want to be front and center this evening as BlogTalkRadio presents one of the legends of the art form.
At 10 p.m. ET, drummer Marky Ramone joins The Ripple Effect host Pope John the Enforcer and his sidekick, RacerX, as they flash back to punk’s heydays when The Ramones ruled the airwaves with hits like I Wanna Be Sedated and Rock ‘n’ Roll High School.
Marky (born Marc Steven Bell) will also share his memories of The Ramones’ three founding members – Dee Dee Ramone, Joey Ramone and Johnny Ramone – all of whom, sadly, passed away between 2002 and 2004.
In all, Marky – who joined the Brooklyn-bred rockers in 1978 as the replacement for original drummer Jeffrey Hyman – spent 14 years as a Ramone and recorded 10 albums with the band.
Among his high points with the band?
Starring in the 1979 cult flick Rock ‘n’ Roll High School.
Coming to you each week from Brentwood, Calif., The Ripple Effect features “the best music you’re not listening to, re- views of lost classics and ob- scure titles, un- heralded bands and new song- writers who de- serve greater attention.”
