PHOTOS: MARKY RAMONE IN-STUDIO
Marky Ramone stopped by the Jim Kerr Rock & Roll Morning Show to give us some details on his new chart topper, but not-so-new song that re-emerged almost 40 years later! The song "Legacy" was recorded in 1971 when Marky Ramone was with the band Dust, before he joined The Ramones.
Marky Ramone, formally Mark Bell, is not only a staple in punk rock history, he's also a humanitarian. He's participated in Habitat for Humanity, a nonprofit organization that transforms lives and neighborhoods after devastation. After Hurricane Sandy, some New York suburban areas still needed help and Ramone lent a helping hand by providing food for the workers and residents from his food truck "Cruisin' Kitchen" which is home to his famous pasta sauce that's now available for purchase. Sticking to his humanitarian habits, 10% of the pasta sauce proceeds go to Autism Speaks charity.
Ramone is also geared up with a new band called Marky Ramone's Blitzkrieg. It's a Ramones tribute band that plays The Ramones classics all around the world for the new and old fans alike. Ramone continues the legacy for his late band members. "To me Johnny, Joey and Dee Dee died too young and they didn't enjoy the fruits of their labor, so I wanted to continue this because the songs are too good not to be played."
