A great compilation of Tommy Ramone’s live performances by Alli Patton at American Songwriter. Including, this excerpt: In 1977, the band made an appearance on the music variety show, Don Kirshner’s Rock Concert, playing another fiery set for television audiences. The drummer can be glimpsed in the back, delivering a durable beat to songs like “Sheena is a Punk Rocker,” “Loudmouth,” and “Gimme Gimme Shock Treatment.”
