And I do! I’ve been listening to the Who and Pete Townshend’s solo work all day! But today is another rock legend’s birthday as well! Sadly, he is always overshadowed by Pete Townshend in my heart, and I don’t mean to do that. So right now, I’m paying my respects to the late Joey Ramone!! I also have a lot of cool pictures of him in my “Rock and Roll” board on Pinterest, but only because he’s the Godfather of Punk and he’s effortlessly cool. I admire him for his musical contributions and of course, his role in Rock and Roll High School, one of my favorite movies ever and a rock and roll staple. I’m not in love with him like I am with Pete Townshend; I leave that to Riff Randell.
Anyway, throwback Thursday picture that honors both of these birthday rockers:
