Happy Birthday Tommy Ramone

Belated birthday wishes to Tamas Erdelyi, the quiet genius behind The Ramones.

Turns out the German newspaper Die Zeit ran a very interesting article on Tommy's special day. Also turns out the article spoke at length about Heebie-Jeebies at CBGB's. For those of you who tune in here regularly, this is not the same article that Die Zeit ran a few weeks ago, but an entirely new one.

To check it out go to the link below. You can then translate it using one of the free online services such as Babel Fish. Or, you can click on the second link, where I've conveniently translated it for you. Unfortunately, the translation reads like something out of a Fortune Cookie Factory run by Chairman Mao -- it's damn confusing, in other words. Kind of like the Strange Flavored Chicken. Good luck!
