I Feel A Bit Better Now

So, the other day I lamented the use of a Clash song in a Jaguar commercial. Then came this Commercial Appeal story, an interview with Johnny Ramone, of seminal punk band The Ramones. It made me feel a bit better.

Turns out that Johnny Ramone is a level-headed, regular working Joe. He's got a slight Elvis Presley connection. At the induction ceremony where the Ramones joined the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, he said, "God bless George Bush and God bless America!"

It's not in the story, but Johnny Ramone is a Republican. Go figure....

Until next time,
Your Working Boy
