TOMMY RAMONE ! ‘Rockaway Beach’ – Acoustic Version…

Tommy Ramone (born Erdélyi Tamás on January 29, 1949 – Hungarian roots) was the Last Ramone alive until he passed away last year on this very day (July 11) – he was supposed to be the manager but ended up replacing Joey on drums – Joey couldn’t keep up with the fast tempos and as we all know he became the legendary lead singer (I love this kind of brilliant historic stories) – Tommy was the punks’ awesome drummer from 1974 to 1978 and co-produced their first three albums – to remember him I picked his cool and charming acoustic version of Ramones classic the ‘Rockaway Beach’ – in the video clip he talks first about some great New York City songs and then plays one – rest in peace, man…
