‘Hey! Ho! Let's Go' preview the Ramones exhibit

- "You can say that Iggy (Pop) started punk, but they started a movement," said Linda Ramone about her legendary husband, Johnny Ramone, and his band, The Ramones.

Linda Ramone is helping to spread the word about a new exhibit about the punk rockers at the Queens Museum.

'Hey! Ho! Let's Go: Ramones and the Birth of Punk opens Sun., Apr. 10 and runs through July 31.

"It is the 40th year (since the first album.) The original members are all passed away. The legacy is really important,” said Ramone.

Fans will see art work and memorabilia from the Queens rockers including a date book belonging to Johnny Ramone that he was given at a local bank.

“From the first day of  Ramones to the last day of the Ramones, he kept track of every job they played, who they played with and the attendance. You feel Johnny’s crazy energy,” said Ramone.

Among the notes in the date book:"CBGB's with Blondie" under July 17, 1975.

"It's going to be great," said Linda Ramone.
