Ramone, Johnny
▪ 2005
John Cummings 
      American rock musician (b. Oct. 8, 1948, Long Island, N.Y.—d. Sept. 15, 2004, Los Angeles, Calif.), cofounded the legendary punk band the Ramones in 1974. His guitar work on songs such as “Blitzkrieg Bop,” “Judy Is a Punk,” and “I Wanna Be Sedated” helped define the New York punk sound, and the band's appearance in director Roger Corman's Rock 'n' Roll High School (1979) spawned waves of imitators in leather jackets and ripped jeans. The Ramones performed in more than 2,000 shows between 1974 and 1997, and in 2002 they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio.
