Marky Ramone

He wasn't their original drummer, but Marky Ramone spent enough time beating the skins for the Ramones that he's considered by many to be the drummer that mattered. One of the most visible and best-known drummers in the punk world, Marky has kept busy since the legendary punk band's mid-'90s split by keeping time for the Misfits and, most recently, punk supergroup Osaka Popstar and the American Legends of Punk. In addition to his duties behind the kit, he's been pumping out the old-school punk on "Marky Ramone's Punk Rock Blitzkrieg," a radio show he hosts on Sirius satellite radio. Now taking his new DJ career on the road, playing everything from Richard Hell to Rancid, Marky is currently in the midst of a very brief -- not to mention rare -- club tour, which hits Lipgloss this Friday, December 8. Gabba gabba hey!
