Billboard spoke to Linda Ramone about her life with Johnny Ramone and she too is also quite a character. Speaking at a rapid-fire Ramone pace with an almost comically thick New Yawk accent, she still heartbreakingly refers to Johnny in the present tense as if she still can't believe he's gone. She's also referred to as the Yoko Ono of punk rock because she was dating Joey Ramone for two years before she left him for Johnny. The two band mates barely spoke after that.
