*shakes fist at subby*

Ya scared me for a second.

fta: He was also responsible for recording Marilyn Monroe's now infamous performance of Happy Birthday Mr President to John F. Kennedy in 1962.

I did not know that. Cool.

Ramone produced three records that went on to win Grammys for album of the year with Paul Simon's 'Still Crazy After All These Years," Joel's '52nd Street' and ray Charles' 'Genius Loves Company.'

Good albums. RIP Mr. Not Tommy Ramone.

And yet it seems that Rolling Stones are impossible to kill.

Legend has it that the only way to kill Keith Richards is to throw him into a volcano, but it has to be a specific volcano and nobody remembers which. Possibly Mount Etna.

Hate on Billy Joel all you want, but listen to what Phil, Billy and his band did on Until The Night and STFU unless you are the Righteous Brothers.

WHAT!??!?

Oh.  Different Ramone.  Still.  :/

Mount Doom.  From where he was forged.

Yep. Zanzibar is another great one with those jazz breaks. Then again I'm biased, I heard that album so many times growing up since my parents had it, I know every corner of it. RIP magnificent knob twiddler!

He just wanted to be sedated.

If all the Ramones ain't dead, why does Moe's have them on their playlist?

(seriously, "Blitzkrieg Bop" is such an odd thing to hear in a family-friendly restaurant, even today)

This Ramone is still alive.

He had one great career. His memoir is 'so-so' though.

I think its just a one member dead rule, I've heard Boston and Queen in there.  And I'm not sure if family-friendly qualifies for a fast food joint themed after dead rockers.

I bought it last summer at a Goodwill for 3 bucks and enjoyed it quite a bit.  The writing certainly was nothing to write home about, so to speak, but I found it easy and entertaining.  FWIW.

No no, you just have to destroy this painting he has in the attic.

I'm really starting to suspect Fark gains something by linking to the Daily Mail... My submission yesterday, that linked to rollingstone.com, was rejected.

Get past the 'cool' factor and you're forced to admit she had an amazing voice.

And Freddie Hubbard did the scorching trumpet solo, too! I always much preferred "52nd Street" to "The Stranger". 
 
Phil Woods also played sax on "Just The Way You Are", which was the big redeeming factor in that song, IMO. Don't get me wrong... I like Billy Joel. I think the guy's massively talented. But "Just The Way You Are" isn't his finest hour, IMO. But it is better than "We Didn't Start The Fire", which even he hates. 
 
Phil Ramone was a great producer & engineer. He twiddled the knobs on Elton John's 11-17-70 album at Ramone's own A&R studios in New York. 11-17-70 was one of the best live rock recordings ever made, in my humble opinion.

She did. It's a shame she didn't do more solo work- once you take away all the overproduction and sentimentality of the Carpenters records, you really could tell what a singer she was.
