Phil Spector and guns[edit]

As it reads now, the rumour that Spector pulled a gun on members of the Ramones is presented as a fact: "During the recording sessions in Los Angeles, Spector held Johnny at gunpoint, forcing him to repeatedly play a riff."

This rumour is denied by Marky Ramone himself quite strongly (see http://www.nme.com/news/ramones/41403 and http://www.miaminewtimes.com/music/marky-ramone-talks-phil-spector-and-his-first-book-he-never-pointed-a-gun-at-us-7564148). I'm suggest the line be changed to reflect it was a rumour and that band member Marky Ramone has denied any such incident took place. Tigerman2005 (talk) 03:52, 2 October 2015 (UTC)

Marc Bolan invited onstage at the Roundhouse, London in 1976[edit]

I was at the Roundhouse gig, and and I don't remember Marc Bolan being invited on stage. Maybe it was at the later Dingwalls gig that this happened. Dingwalls was a smaller club venue, which was often frequented by musicians and music industry people. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.239.49.23 (talk) 17:57, 20 December 2015 (UTC)

Question? Archived sources still need to be checked

Genres[edit]

I cannot believe pop punk hasn't been added to their genres, most of their music is in fact pop punk. http://www.avclub.com/article/beginners-guide-bouncy-buzz-pop-punk-201853 http://www.rhapsody.com/blog/post/rhapsody-university-pop-punk-101 http://www.pbs.org/independentlens/endofthecentury/legacy.html ~~ — Preceding unsigned comment added by Realpunkmusic (talkcontribs) 13:53, 8 March 2016 (UTC)

It is already present in the musical style section. FYI, its common practice to list just 1 or 2 major, core genre in the infobox, and then expand it with other genre in a musical style section later on. See examples like The Smashing Pumpkins, Metallica, Nirvana (band), etc. Sergecross73 msg me 21:02, 8 March 2016 (UTC)

[edit]

Hello- I'm an avid Ramones fan and noticed that the logo is not up to date. Meaning, the members in the logo on the page now are not the members that the band ended with. I am advocating the change or update of The Ramones logo on their page to better show who the ending members of the band were, which includes Tommy, Johnny, Joey and DeeDee. Marky left the band due to alcoholism and anger over t-shirt sales in the 80s. This was how the band played their last show. I think it's important to have this logo and not the one that is currently up as it is more accurate as it displays the names of the original members.

Can you provide a link to the logo you propose to use? Cullen328 Let's discuss it 19:48, 27 June 2016 (UTC)


Here's an example of the link I'm arguing we change it to: http://www.thelogofactory.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/ramones-logo.png

That is not a good source for a logo since it is a commercial logo design website. The source should be an official band website. I know that the band has not been around for 20 years, but there is still an official website, isn't there? Cullen328 Let's discuss it 00:50, 28 June 2016 (UTC)


Okay- here's from the actual Ramones website. http://www.ramones.com/photos/. The original photo was posted to their Instagram. This is the logo that is acknowledged as the current and most accurate by the band/ Johnny's wife and the their reps. Watermelonfree (talk) 19:04, 28 June 2016 (UTC)
