Yes, I can cross off the bucket list that I actually saw one of the remaining Ramones live. And got to meet him, shake his hand and get his autograph!
His backing band was awesome, his solo songs were pretty good, but we fans were there for the Ramones songs and CJ didn't disappoint. No "Pet Sematary" or "Pinhead", sadly, but there were plenty of other awesome classics. "Blitzkrieg Bop", "Commando," "I Wanna Be Sedated" and much more! It was kinda like the "first Ramones show" experience I never got to have. The roughest bunch in the mosh pit that developed later were the older fans, can you believe it (yes, dude with the gray beard and glasses, I'm looking at you ;) !!!) I think we were all 17 again for a few moments there! It's one of the best moments of my life, that's for sure. The only downer was that my friend took a picture of me and CJ with his phone but thanks to stupid tech issues it didn't come out. :( But still an awesome time and I'm all buzzy right now just thinking about it! :D
My icon is a cute little baby sloth today. Because Marky Ramone once nicknamed CJ "Baby Sloth" long ago, and because sloths are adorable (my newest virtual pet on my profile is a purple sloth! Hee hee! :D)
