punk rock

th e jo e y ram one collection The famed Ramones front man and countercultural icon who defined punk for a generation, Joey Ramone, is a larger-than-life figure in the history of rock music. The Ramones burst onto the New

York music scene and took it by storm—their unbridled energy and frenetic pace was unlike anything that had come before. Joey Ramone was crucial to their initial success—he was the one front man

on the burgeoning New York punk scene who was unique. He had a distinct style—long black hair,

leather jacket, sunglasses—to match what would become one of the most recognizable voices in punk. The first portion of this section (items 737–751) consists of numerous items straight from Ramone’s

estate, a collection that represents all that the name “Joey Ramone” conjures up—his stage-worn leather pants and t-shirts are highlights. Among the music-related items are two of his RIAA sales

awards and over a hundred records from his personal collection. The opportunity rarely arises to purchase items directly from a legend’s estate, and these come with impeccable provenance.
