Gabba Gabba Hey! Joey Ramone On Sketch Lottery!

Hey ho, let’s go! Last week’s Sketch Lottery character was the late, great Joey Ramone. So you know I didn’t want to miss a chance drawing him.

Funny part was I never saw The Ramones live. However, I did see Joey Ramone walk around St. Mark’s Place twice. I didn’t go up to him. Perhaps I should have. This is why later you always end up regretting you haven’t done.

However, I was lucky enough to see Joey Ramone sing with Ronnie Spector live at the venue Coney Island High. This was sometime during the late ’90s.

Enjoy my Joey Ramone sketch, and don’t forget to check out the other artists.

    I saw Joey Ramone perform with Ronnie Spector in the late 1990s as well. I was still living in the suburbs, so this was at a bar / club in the town of Port Chester. It was one of the few genuinely cool things I remember ever happing in the area.

    I was at that Coney Island High show too. It was in ’96. Here’s the set list: http://www.setlist.fm/setlist/joey-ramone/1996/coney-island-high-new-york-ny-3fa3de7.html
