  • U2 Joey Ramone tie-in

    I was looking for a video of one of my favorite U2 songs (In a Little While). I learned some interesting trivia regarding Joey Ramone in the process...yeah I am usually the last to hear stuff like this.

    Anyway, cool little vid, and proof positive that LP's don't just do dirt.

      I love how the Edge can get his LP to sound. He can make it so jangly and not muddy. Look up some live versions of Desire. I would never have thought he'd use the LP for that.

        Apparently U2 performed this song at Joey's funeral. I'm not sure that's true, but how big an honor that must have been for U2 if it is true.

          "The Ramones stopped the music world long enough for U2 and the other garage bands to get on," Bono said. "They invented something ... the idea that your limitations were what made you ... your street, your neighborhood, the clothes on your back, your record collection was the size of your universe." Bono called Ramone in his hospital room on Good Friday, and U2's song "In a Little While" was playing in the room when Ramone died two days later.

          Joey Ramone was buried under a steel-gray sky on Tuesday, April 17 at Hillside Cemetery in Lyndhurst, N.J., with the spires of Manhattan rising in the distance.

          "At least he has a good view," said a visibly distraught Deborah Harry, who once cavorted with Joey in the photo pages of Punk magazine. Also among the dozens of weeping friends and family members on hand as a rabbi read Kaddish at the Ramones singer's graveside were Blondie guitarist Chris Stein, singer Joan Jett, original Ramones drummer Tommy Erdelyi, and New York area DJs Vin Scelsa and Dennis McNamara.

          An hour or so earlier, at a service at Schwartz Brothers Memorial Chapel in the Ramones' old hometown of Forest Hills, N.Y., Joey's brother, Mickey Leigh, told the mourners that, while he could talk the whole day long about his late sibling, "my brother could have said it all in two minutes and 10 seconds."

          Joey Ramone - born Jeffrey Hyman on May 19, 1951 - died at New York-Presbyterian Hospital in Manhattan on Easter Sunday, after a seven-year battle with cancer. One of the last musicians to speak to him was U2 frontman Bono, a longtime Ramones admirer, who called Joey in his hospital room on Good Friday. Joey wasn't able to say much, but according to Mickey, "You could really see him perk up."

          On Sunday, when Mickey and his mother got a call from the hospital to come in, Mickey brought a copy of U2's album All That You Can't Leave Behind and slipped the CD into a little boom box in Joey's room. The track he played was Bono's own "In a Little While," which Mickey felt was a very spiritual song:

          In a little while
          This hurt will hurt no more
          I'll be home, love

          In a little while
          I won't be blown by every breeze
          Friday night running to Sunday on my knees


          When the song came to an end, Joey was gone. That night, at a concert in Portland, Ore., U2 offered their audience a rendition of the Ramones' "I Remember You" ("a great, great love song," says Bono) and, for Joey, the old hymn "Amazing Grace."
