Today (April 15) we remember Ramones frontman Joey Ramone who passed away of Lymphoma on April 15, 2001 at the age of 49.

I met Joey 20 years ago at an outdoor concert in the village of Woodstock where he was performing with punk band The Independents. Having never gotten a chance to see The Ramones live, it was an experience I'll always remember fondly. I chatted with Joey for awhile about radio and the music scene. Blast some Ramones today in Joey's memory!
