Joey Ramone was the son of Charlotte and Noel Hyman; he grew up in Forest Hills in Queens New York, with his brother, Mickey Leigh, who later also became a musician. Joey went to Forest Hills High School, but was never a part of big friendships and most of the time spent alone. The situation got worse once he was diagnosed with obsessive-compulsive disorder. However, he found his solace in music; from an early age he had listened to such bands and musicians as the Beatles, David Bowie, and the Who, among others. Once he turned 13, he started playing drums, and four years later took up an acoustic guitar too.

When he was 21 years old, Joey joined his first band, called Sniper, becoming their lead vocalist, and consisting of Bob Butani, Danny Wray, Peter Morales and Patrick Frankslyn. However, Joey left the group even before recording a demo tape, since he was replaced by Alan Turner.

The same year, he started the band The Ramones, with his friends Douglas Covin and John Cummings; Douglas already had a stage name Dee Dee Ramone, and the two took the Ramone surname, with John becoming Johnny Ramone and Jeffrey, Joey Ramone.

In the beginning, Joey was on the drums, while Dee Dee Ramone was at the microphone. Nevertheless, that changed once their manager, Tommy Erdelyi, a.k.a Tommy Ramone, took over drumming duties. Their first album came out in 1976, entitled “Ramones”, an produced such hits as “Blitzkrieg Bop” and “I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend”. By the time the ‘70s ended, The Ramones had three more albums to their name, “Leave Home” (1977), “Rocket to Russia” (1977), and “Road to Ruin” (1978), make such hits as “Sheena Is a Punk Rocker”, “Rockaway Beach”, “Do You Wanna Dance?”, and “Needles and Pins” (1978), among others, all of which increased the popularity of the band.

In 1980 they released their fifth album “End of the Century”, which featured new drummer, Marky Ramone, since Tommy left due to stress while on tours. The album reached No. 14 on the UK charts, and spawned such hits as “Baby, I Love You” and “Do You Remember Rock ‘n’ Roll Radio”. The same year they released the song “I Wanna Be Sedated”, which was used on the soundtrack of the film “Times Square”, and became one of their biggest hits. In 1981 their next album came out, entitled “Pleasant Dreams”, but the album wasn’t very successful, which also applied two a couple of following releases, “Subterranean Jungle” (1983) and “Too Tough to Die” (1984).

Two years later, they released “Animal Boy”, which put them back on track, and spawned the hit single “Somebody Put Something in My Drink”. The band existed for the next ten years, releasing five more albums, including the “Halfway to Sanity” (1987), “Brain Drain” (1989), “Mondo Bizarro” (1992), and “¡Adios Amigos!” (1995), all of which increased Joey’s net worth.

Thanks to his contribution to music, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2002.

Regarding his personal life, little is known about Joey’s life away from the music industry, since he kept it as private as possible.

According to reports, Joey Ramone was listening to the song “In a Little While” by U2 when he died in hospital on 15th April in 2001, from the complications of lymphoma from which he had suffered for seven years.
