Raised in Queens, New York, Johnny Ramone founded one of the most influential rock bands of all time, but he never strayed from his blue-collar roots and attitude. He was truly imbued with the angry-young-man spirit that would characterize his persona both on and off stage. Through it all, Johnny kept the band focused and moving forward, ultimately securing their place in music history by inventing punk rock. The Ramones were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2002 - two years later, Johnny died of cancer, having outlived two other founding members. Revealing, inspiring, and told on his own terms, this highly designed memoir also features Johnny's assessment of the Ramones' albums; a number of eccentric Top Ten lists; rare historical artifacts; and scores of personal and professional photos, many of which have never before been published. Praise for Commando:"Amazing book . . . dense and throbbing with character - enough to bring this departed New York icon barking back to life. " - New York Daily News "Johnny's delightful, sadly posthumous autobiography, Commando, is just like its author - as punk as it gets. " - Wall Street Journal "Ramone memoir reveals charming, grumpy punk icon. " - Reuters"There's no grand confessional to end Commando, just a nod of gratitude toward family, friends, and fans. Its characteristic succinctness rings genuine. " - Austin Chronicle

John William Cummings (October 8th 1948 - September 15th 2004), better known by the stage name Johnny Ramone, was the guitarist for the seminal punk rock group The Ramones. He was a founding member of the band and along with vocalist Jeffery Hyman, aka Joey Ram one, he remained a member throughout his career. He was placed at #1 6 on Rolling Stone magazine's 1 00 greatest guitarists of all time. In Time magazines 2009 rating of the "10 Greatest Electric Guitar Players," Johnny was named, in a fit of appropriate rebellion, #11.
