"WOW!!! This is a very fitting way to say "see ya for now, John". We should never say goodbye to our friends, heroes or loved ones and this film proves that!! It is an amazing look back at not just Johnny Ramone but the music itself and the influence it has had worldwide for the last 30 years. Even though the last 10-15 minutes are absolutely heartbreaking, it is well worth multiple viewings for fans of the band as well as fans of music itself. Life is short and was even shorter for Johnny, Joey, and Dee Dee. But I know they just wanted to get to heaven before the rest of us so they would have time to rehearse. See ya soon fellas! HEY HO, LET'S GO!!!!!"
Good piece for the Ramones collection.

"I am not a professional writer or critic but Ill just state the facts of my opinions on this video . First ,If you are well informed about the Ramones already there really isn't any information you would not know anyways . If you have seen the other documentaries , interviews and perhaps read the books it is just more of the same info .If you are unfamiliar with the Ramones than This video does relay the basic story of the Ramones. The performances were descent except the audio in some performances could have been much better.Soundchecks for the audio recording were probably rushed the night of the concert due to the fast pace stage changes. The highlight of the DVD is seeing Marky and CJ on stage together performing some Ramones classics for the first time in more than 8 years .I think the ceramony for the Johnny Ramone statue was edited too much for the video or wasnt thurough but maybe for the better if there was a lot of down time that day .I rate this one a 3 out of 5 . At least there was footage recorded of these 2 events and if you are a Ramones collector than buy it ."

"Johnny is a legend and he won't let ya forget it even in death. This DVD has the extra added bonus of *not* having famous hanger-on Legs McNeil in it. And as for the last heartbreaking 15 minutes, heck, I cried. Gabba."
