The Ramones' Joey Ramone

"The one thing about doing this Ramones thing was that it resurfaced a lot of old

memories — things I was happy to keep underwater. It was heavy therapy and it

made me deal with a lot of things I was content not to deal with ... but I'm happy to do it

because I love the Ramones' music and the Ramones are like a force to be reckoned

with." — Joey Ramone (born Jeff Hyman), ex-Ramones frontman on compiling the

two-CD career retrospective Hey! Ho! Let's Go!: The Ramones Anthology (July 20)
