I just visited Dee Dee Ramone’s grave at Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles. The late rocker’s headstone had lipstick kissed graffiti in a variety of shades, including purple. Littered around the bottom were empty beer cans, hot sauce packets, cigarettes, and guitar picks. The humble, little stone has really been loved on by Dee Dee’s friends and fans. I said a little prayer to ‘Mr. 1, 2, 3, 4,’ and knelt down to kiss the peak of the marble. As I walked back to my rental car, the security guard scooted up on her golf cart. She had snuck me in during closed hours while a funeral was happening because I said I wanted to say hi to a friend and would only be 5 minutes. She was obviously timing me. In honor of Dee Dee, I found some weird videos and wacky songs he was involved in for your viewing pleasure.
