A Ramones Revival

MarkyRamone

Marky Ramone, who played drums with The Ramones for 15 years after Tommy bowed out, just launched a tour with his world-class Ramones cover band, which is being ably fronted by NYC art-punk Andrew W.K.

I saw the latter last week playing free-jazz piano with Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon at the Brooklyn Masonic Temple, part of this month’s wild, polyglot Red Bull Music Academy series. In the words of Joey Ramone, which W.K. will no doubt be singing, New York City really has it all.

Keep the fire burning, dudes. Rolling Stone has more here.
