Biography

John William Cummings (October 8, 1948 – September 15, 2004), known professionally as Johnny Ramone, was an American guitarist and songwriter who was the guitarist for the punk rock band the Ramones. He was a founding member of the band, and–along with vocalist Joey Ramone–remained a constant member throughout his entire career.
In 2009, he appeared on Time’s list of “The 10 Greatest Electric-Guitar Players”. He ranked No. 8 on Spin’s 2012 list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time” and No. 28 on Rolling Stone’s similarly titled 2015 list.
Alongside his music career, Johnny appeared in nearly a dozen films (including Rock ‘n’ Roll High School) and documentaries. He also made television appearances in such shows as The Simpsons (1F01 “Rosebud”, 1993) and Space Ghost Coast to Coast (Episode 5 “Bobcat”).
His autobiography, entitled Commando, was released posthumously in 2012. In the book, Ramone writes about his love of baseball and of collecting baseball cards and movie posters, particularly horror-related posters.
