Joey Ramone

Well, to make a long story short, Joey Ramone was Jewish!

Since Joey Ramone's mother was Jewish, and in Orthodox Judaism and Conservative Judaism, those with a Jewish mother (or those who underwent a halakhic conversion) are considered Jewish, then that makes him Jewish. His father was Jewish too.

Joey Ramone (whose full birth name was Jeffrey Ross Hyman) was born on May 19, 1951 in Forest Hills, New York, United States. Joey Ramone passed away on April 15, 2001 (aged 49).

He is best known as the lead vocalist of the punk rock band the Ramones. Joey Ramone's image, voice and tenure as front man of the Ramones made him a countercultural icon.
