After The Ramones hung up their leather jackets in 1996, Joey Ramone continued to work diligently writing and recording songs. Sadly, Joey succumbed to cancer in April 2001 at the age of 49 before the release of Don't Worry About Me, his debut solo effort. The universally hailed 11-song set includes 9 stellar originals along with standout covers of "What a Wonderful World" made famous by Louis Armstrong and The Stooges' "1969."
Producer, guitarist and long-time friend Daniel Rey worked alongside Joey on Don't Worry About Me from day one. He completed final mixes on songs that hadn't been mixed prior to Joey's passing. Joey recruited world-class bassist Andy Shernoff (The Dictators) and split the drumming between Frank Funaro (Cracker and Del Lords) and special guest Marky Ramone.
Captain Sensible (The Damned), who guests on "Mr. Punchy," said "if anyone is looking for someone to 'blame' for punk, his would have been one of the first doors to knock on. Joey Ramone has contributed some bloody marvelous moments to the world of music." Lemmy of Motorhead added, "Joey was my friend and he understood rock 'n' roll better than any other singer of my generation."
The Ramones were indeed the progenitors of punk music and, as the voice of the group, Joey not only influenced thousands of bands, but also established standards for punk fashion and culture. The Ramones enjoyed a 22-year career that yielded 23 records and countless world tours. The band's vast legacy was recognized with an induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2002.
