Johnny Ramone was the hard right conservative punk with an affinity for serial killers and nazi memorabilia. But without his discipline, anger and guitar - there would be no Ramones. His wife, Linda, as well as rock stars such as Pearl Jam singer Eddie Vedder, Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante and hard-rocker Rob Zombie, were at his bedside when the end came about 3:00 in the afternoon of September 15th, 2004
