A LONG WAY BACK TO GERMANY: With the teevee in the background yesterday, I listened to and occasionally peaked up from packing to catch a glimpse of Too Tough to Die, a Rhino documentary and memorial concert tribute to the late Johnny Ramone which aired on Starz Cinema. Though the focus of the doc's interviews and reminiscences was on the band's pugnacious guitarist, listening to the likes of the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Henry Rollins only half successfully work their way through Joey's vocals made it absolutely clear just how remarkable and widely ranged a singer the group's skinny frontman was. Yup, I still really really miss that band . . .
