Earlier this week a rumour spread about the death of Tommy Ramone that was actually unfounded at the time. Sadly, on Friday 11th July, Tommy passed away at a hospice in NY where he was receiving care due to cancer. He was 62 years old and the last remaining original member of The Ramones.
The Ramones FB page posted a simple message last night confirming the news:
We are saddened to announce the passing of Tommy Ramone (nee Erdelyi), the original drummer for the Ramones, earlier today, 11 July 2014.
