The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:
Here’s the first of possibly 2 questions on the influence of the Beatles on other musicians. When you look up punk rock in an encyclopedia you just might find a picture of the Ramones. Fast quick songs – simple and direct. For fun each member was named Ramone: Dee Dee, Joey, Johnny and whoever else was in the band at the time – Ramone. So where did they get the name Ramone?
When Beatle Paul McCartney visited a NYC hotel, he used to make reservations under the name Paul Ramone. Dee Dee heard about this, liked it and changed his name to Dee Dee Ramone. The rest is history.
I had no correct eligible answers – I had no correct answers. Seems there was a rash of no vacancies! I don’t dumb down/so please wise up.
Now on to a new Q.: Win a copy of my NEW cd CALLED ‘30′! – (first anti-band CD) or my NEWER cd CALLED ‘NEXT”(‘06) or my NEWEST cd CALLED ‘THIRDS” (May ‘07) or my MORE NEWEST cd Called “FOUR-TH” (‘08) or my MOST NEWEST cd CALLED ‘5-TH (Nov.’09) or my MORE NEWEST NEWEST cd CALLED ’6-TH’(Feb ’12)( one of the 6 CD set). Hunkasaurus.com (has them all plus videos and more) if you are the first to E-MAIL ME AT THIS ADDRESS: tom-hendricks @ att.net(remove blanks of course) with the correct answer to this art question.
DEDICATION: These contests are dedicated to my sister, Peggy, who answered more of the questions correctly than anyone else.
FINE PRINT: The CD prize is only available to those with mailing addresses in the US. Foreign winners will have to settle for the miniscule fame alone, and the satisfaction of a job well done. But don’t forget you can listen to all the music on the website, whether you won or lost – and I’d be glad if you did!
