Resource Magazine was sad to learn about the death of Punk rock legend Tommy Ramone yesterday. Ramone was 65 and the last living original member of the band, which debuted its first album in 1976. To help celebrate the life of Tommy Ramone,  we wanted to share with you an interview with Ramones friend, and photographer, Roberta Bayley. The iconic photographer spent a great deal of time with the band and helped define the image of not just the Ramones but the entire punk scene in NY during the 70’s.
