Tommy Boy

Sad news--Tommy Ramone has died.  He was the last of the original four.  They all died before their time.

His real name was Thomas Erdelyi--born Erdelyi Tamas--and he played drums on the band's first three albums.  He also produced their fourth--and their first four albums are their four best.  He'd go on to produce other fine bands, such as The Replacements, but he'll always be Tommy Ramone in our hearts.

Howard stern kind of adopted their look or did he look like that first?

The first time I saw Stern I thought hey, it's Joey Ramone. Maybe he was inspired by them, but I think it was a common enough look that he could have come by it honestly. (It's never looked that good on Howard, actually.)
