The Top Ten
Johnny is in fact one of my favorite ramones, he was fast, smart, and had cool-arse riffs. Have your time to read this autobiography for a speed history. It feels like he's talking to you when you read it. - Mumbizz01
Johnny flat-out rocked. Definitely gave the band a direction and ran them like an army battalion. He's also just one of the greatest rhythm guitarists ever, so that has to count for something.
created the downstroke style used today, and gave the ramones speed
Strong conservative. Always has my vote. And a great guitar player.
The hottest, he had sexy long legs, and was just adorable in my opinion. He was also definitely the sweetheart of the group, and he was just extremely cute. Plus the singers are usually always the hottest. Even though dee dee, and johnny are definitely in competition with being hot, I don't think either can compare to joey.
Joey Ramone wasn't the "sweetheart" of the group and members (most notably Johnny) claimed Joey was difficult to work with - Mumbizz01
best voice, never gave up, and give the ramones his heart
His voice made music of Ramones
Is there really any competition?
wrote all the best songs, first punk, best punk, and he gave the ramones energy
yeah he's a bass player and a songwriter... and a drug abuser - CrowdedChisel
Dee dee is the best! End of discussion
Best drummer, fastest drummer, created punk drums
Come on people, he was the architect of the whole package!
Yap he simply created punk rock
Gave the Ramones a unique feel that was with them from 1978-1996V 1 Comment
The best but least known drummer of the Ramones, he played on my favorite albums and he was very influential to me as a drummer. I think he is better than Tommy because he had more musical knowledge and skill, and he was better than Marky because he developed better songs and albums than any other Ramones drummer ever.
Richie was probably the most accomplished musician ever in the group. He wrote cool songs. I thought that they should have kicked Johnny out and kept Richie and gotten Mickey Leigh on the guitar...
THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN A BAND.
THE fastest Ramones drummer and THE best Ramones drummer. He also wrote one of the best Ramones songs "Somebody Put Something in my Drink!V 1 Comment
Gave the ramones a rebirth and the energy they needed to continue from 1989-1996
The Ramones would have been disbanded years before they finally did disband where it not for the 5th Ramone, Monte Melnick. He was their manager, their father, their rabbi, their priest, their counselor, and their shoulder to lean on time and time again! He was the "glue" they were the "craft project"
Put up with Dee Dee's psychiticness, Johnny's Anger, Marky's drinking and Joey's OCD for 22 non stop years
Wrote the best book about the Ramones "On The Road With The Ramones" - thegreatoneV 1 Comment
Gave them two shows they needed
Somebody call me on the phone
Say, "Hey hey hey, is Arty home?
You wanna take a walk, you wanna go cop?
You wanna go get some Chinese rock? "
