His many fans will no doubt wonder at the absence of anything by Wayne County from the list of Top 50 American punk albums we've compiled as part of this month's cover story on the Ramones. After all, Wayne – who by 1980 was Jayne County, following the necessary surgery – was with his band Queen Elizabeth part of the same Max's Kansas City, Mercer Arts Center and Club 82 scene that nurtured the early New York Dolls.
A biopic on the Ramones will happen, according to the widow of Johnny Ramone.
Linda Ramone has revealed in an interview with Rolling Stone that she is currently in talks to turn the band's story into a film. "I have offers right now to do a Ramones movie," she said.
Ramones frontman Joey Ramone's record collection is set to go under the hammer.
The late musician's vinyl collection includes records by Led Zeppelin, The Who, Bob Dylan, The Human League, Iggy Popand The Doors.
The collection is listed as being "In overall very good to fine condition, with various scattered creases and small tears to sleeves, affixed prices tags and labels, and marks to vinyl."
