Martin Scorseseplans to direct a dramatized movie about the Ramones with hopes for a 2016 release.
Scorsese has directed movies like Taxi Driver (1976), Goodfellas (1990), Gangs of New York (2002), The Aviator (2004) and the film that drove us all wild last year, The Wolf of Wall Street (2013). Having directed movies like those, this promises to be one of the best films of 2016.
The Ramones were an American punk rock band that formed in Queens, New York in 1974. The band – that everyone supposedly is a fan from hell of just because they have a $20 dollar top with their logo on – were a huge influence on the punk rock movement in both the States and the UK back in the day despite achieving only limited commercial success.
This year drummer Thomas Erdelyi (better known as Tommy Ramone), passed away, being the last original Ramone to leave this world.
Have a listen to one of my fave songs by the boys: Hey Ho Let’s Go
