Saw them a few times at CBGB's before they got famous. Think the cover charge was $2.50 to get in. This would have been 1975 and 76. Then they got traction and were touring a lot . Didnt see them again until 1978 when I won front row tix to see them at The Palladium in NYC. That show is able to be heard on the album "1978" taken from the radio broadcast. Think of a jet engine taking off ...20 feet in front of you.

Not the original line up but I saw them in Madrid in the mid 90's. The audience were insane for them. It was one of the craziest shows I ever saw. All the kids were drinking this red wine cola mix they'd made themselves and the venues walls were corrugated metal sheets. I was always a fan but after that show lots of other bands just seemed pointless as they were like The Ramones but not THE RAMONES.

Four times: 1987, 1988, 1991 and 1996. That 1988 show had Jane's Addiction as an opener and I remember that everyone hated them. I still think it was the wrong opener for The Ramones.
US #43: Licor 43, or Cuarenta Y Tres, is a bright yellow Spanish liqueur. It is made from citrus and fruit juices, flavored with vanilla and other aromatic herbs and spices, in total 43 different ingredients (hence the name).

They were an anomaly. they couldn't play. just max out the volume and thrash. they couldn't sing. no range in the vocals. but so endearing to those of us that love rock'n'roll. never saw them though i could've caught them at city gardens.
