RIP Arturo Vega

Posted by Simbi Laveau , 08 June 2013 · 861 views

It is with a very heavy heart I write this.
I just got word Arturo Vega ,aka The Fifth Ramone ,just passed away .
I knew he was sick . I heard last night he was not good ,and now he's gone .

I have very fond memories of Artie from the old Ramones days .
His cases of Dom Perringion . His tee shirts . His tricked out apartment . His tales of Chihuahua Chihuahua ,and how he embraced his sexuality .
It was a part of him,so he discussed it as one discusses their love of cats or food .
Just casual .

I don't know how the Ramones legacy will fare with him gone ,as he kept a huge part of it alive .
*sags*

Another sad day on the LES .
