Johnny Ramone was a founding member of the Ramones, one of the most influential bands of all time. Hailing from Queens, NY, Johnny invented the relentless down-stroke guitar style that defined not only the groundbreaking sound of the legendary Ramones, but the guitar voice of the punk rock movement in general. One of the most influential guitarists in rock history, his impact resonates to this day, and he was listed in Time magazine’s “10 greatest electric guitar players” and named #16 in Rolling Stone’s top 100 guitarists of all time.
