    F YEAH!!!! Now I finally get to recognize myself publicly! Yes, 5:06 into the first youtube video you can see me behind the dude with the pink shirt in the lower center of the video next to the dude with the plaid shirt. That dude with the plaid shirt was my psychobilly buddy who was as nostalgic as I during that whole gig. Yeah, I banged the hell out of my head, obviously from that few seconds of seeing me putting my fist up in the air rocking out. That was such a great tribute to the Ramones and to know that my voice, amongst the rest of the crowd, were the last live audience Johnny Ramone got to hear before his passing. “Hey Ho! Let’s Go! Hey Ho! Let’s Go!” I’ll never ever forget that show and still wear my official concert shirt with pride. LONG LIVE THE RAMONES!!! Great post Caitlyn! Bummer I don’t have a ride or gas money or anything to get me down to that cemetary tribute. I’d love to see the Misfits do some Ramones tracks. Tommy Ramone is such a true hardcore punkrocker man! Still livin’ on through the ages man. He invented the punk drum beat.
