From tha' BBC
"Johnny Ramone, guitarist in punk band The Ramones, has died at the age of 55 following a long fight against cancer.

He passed away at his Los Angeles home on Wednesday afternoon, surrounded by his friends and family, his publicist confirmed."

Apparently he was confirmed dead at 12.34. It's how he would have wanted it...

Blimey. The Ramones are proving to have a short life expectancy.

Don't be a dick Robert, the Ramones mean a lot to a lot of people...

Imagine if Robert Smith died... The Ramones mean just as much to many many people,

Wow, you got home quick. Did you leave when we left? Were you in the taxi? What's going on?

Robert Smith's the fat guy with makeup from the cure/smiths.

Fat? Fat in what way? When was he in The Smiths?

Mike hates bands that wear make up

Don't be a penis. I am just describing him in a way that makes him easily recogniseable, which worked because Iain instantly knew who I meant.

I'd understand if he was ever fat or in The Smiths. "The guy that looks like an electrocuted panda that everyone tried to look like in the early 90s" might have been more accurate.

Funkodrom
24-09-2004, 14:32:36
He wasn't? :confused: :o

Oops. I don't really know anything about them, other than not really liking them.

Debaser

He is quite chubby these days Robert, perhaps you could Google for recent pictures of him...

Funkodrom
24-09-2004, 14:37:52
It's probably because his name is Smith that I got confused. And yes, he's fat now. I can't remember what he used to look like, long time ago and I never paid attention.

zmama
24-09-2004, 14:39:35
Yeah, hes a bit chubby and old for all the eyeliner and stuff. Maybe it's from the years of built up layers of makeup ;)

I suppose when you're pushing 50 you tend to get jowls and look silly in make up. Nobody told Robert Smith or Keith Richards though.

Funkodrom
24-09-2004, 14:46:50
Just like to point out I didn't say anything about him looking stupid.

protein
24-09-2004, 14:48:29
I would have said he looked pretty slim for a 45 year old. John Lydon is more fat. You wouldn't call him "the fat bloke out of the Sex Pistols" though.

Funkodrom
24-09-2004, 14:52:53
I don't ever remember him being thin but that could be my bad memory. In my mind he's always been fat and wearing that make-up.

Anyway, point was that Iain new instantly who I meant so this conversation's irrelevant and my description was adequate.

protein
24-09-2004, 15:08:28
Yeah, he's now thinking of a fat guy from the smiths.

EIF, this is Robert Smith (that fat one not the cat holding a trumpet)

Ok, he doesn't look that fat...

He's not even fat now.

protein
24-09-2004, 15:41:22
Bingo.

protein
24-09-2004, 15:43:19
I think people call him fat now because he was always so skinny and now he's normal size.

Funkodrom
24-09-2004, 15:43:28
I don't understand why you are taking a comment about Robert Smith being fat (which he is) as some kind of personal insult. :confused:

Funkodrom
24-09-2004, 15:43:55
Who calls Johnny Rotten fat?

Because he's not fat. He was always a skinny fucker.

Funkodrom
24-09-2004, 15:46:27
He is now though and I don't remember the time when he was thin. So what?

Debaser

Those big jumpers never did him any favours.

When was Johnny Rotten ever fat???

You should have heard us at rehearsals. Imagine every single conversation turning into uk indie vs american rock and then Nills soloing constantly over the top so we all had to shout.

I wish I had because I would have been laughing my ass off....another part of the rock and roll diet :D

I was normally the mediator between Nills and protein.

Robert Smith's been known as "Fat Bob" for about 15 years. He might look OK for his age now, but in his late 20's he was a rare chubber among the pencil-thin Goths.

Funkodrom
24-09-2004, 16:15:07
AHA!

VINDICATION! Now protein can tell me I was right and we can put this behind us. :)

He was distinctly porky on the Pistols revival tour, though nowhere near as inflated as Steve Jones.

Well, most of the time it was you who was able to shut Nills up so we could try and write something non-metal without him noticing.

I can feel the veins in my forehead popping out just thinking about it. :lol:

I also shut you up so we could write something metal without you noticing. ;)

Johnny Rotten has never looked at all fat...although maybe that's just my perspective :D
