Joey Ramone, lead singer of THE RAMONES, passed away on April 15th at the age of 49. Joey, or Jeffrey Hyman, lost his battle with lymphatic cancer as he, a real punk, did not respond the treatment for the disease.

Joey wasn’t very active lately and there was a good chance of him working with former bandmates again – the singer eventually reconciliated with Marky Ramone, the drummer, in February 2000, having ended a long feud. Now, there won’t be a re-union in this world…
