In the mid 70's, the Ramones changed the sound of Rock and Roll music forever. Punk Rock was born. Since then, whether playing a small club like this one or stadiums, Joey always stayed true to his roots, his fans, and the music.
Joey never turned down an autograph request and no one has ever supported a local scene more than Joey and his beloved New York City. New York and especially the Lower East Side, loved him right back.
It's hard to imagine the future without him. Thank God we've got the music to listen to whenever we want to and especially whenever we need to.
Joey's last show was here at Continental, December 11, 2000. His spirit will live on here and all over the world forever.
Joey, we will never forget you.
