Marky Ramone at Skidmore

marky ramone logoHey, ho, let's go: Marky Ramone -- the drummer for the Ramones -- will be at Skidmore for a talk March 26. The event, sponsored by the Skidmore SEC and Skidmore Speaker's Bureau, is free and open to the public.

Marky Ramone is the lone living member of The Ramones longest running lineup. He's still playing music, hosting a show on SiriusXM radio, and... selling pasta sauce.

The event page doesn't exactly list what Ramone will be talking about, but we're guessing you could just wind him up and good stories will just fall out. After playing 1700some shows with The Ramones over the years, you gotta have one or two interesting tales to tell.

The Skidmore talk is at 7 pm in Palamountain Hall's Gannett Auditorium on March 26. It sounds like they're expecting a crowd because the talk will also be simulcast in Davis Auditorium.

Uh Marky is not the "lone living member of the Ramones. There's still Tommy, Richie and CJ.

Editors: Yep, you're correct. That required a qualification. And it's now been corrected.

Awesome. Im There
