Claim to Fame:
Suffering from crippling OCD at times, Joey Ramone was nonetheless an iconic, punk counterculture rock and roll icon as lead singer and songwriter of The Ramones. Joey, Johnny, Dee Dee and Tommy – the original Ramones, all deceased – never achieved million-seller status for any of their 14 albums but their legacy extends well beyond the five NYC boroughs, with Joey’s snarling vocals and gangly, leather jacketed image turning him into a 20th century countercultural icon.

claim_to_fame: Music

best_know_for: The main source of inspiration for Muddy Waters and Robert Johnson, Son House was a major innovator of the Delta blues style, along with his playing partners Charley Patton and Willie Brown. Few listening experiences in the blues are as intense as hearing one of Son House's original 1930s recordings for the Paramount label. Entombed in a hailstorm of surface noise and scratches, one can still be awestruck by the emotional fervor House puts into his singing and slide guitar playing.
