Linda Marie Daniele was born July 24, 1960 in New York.
(Says Wiki, some sites spell Danielle, I’m not sure.)
She’s better known as Linda Ramone, through her marriage
with Johnny Ramone, whose real name was John Cummings.
So officially she’s called Linda Cummings.

Joey wrote the song The KKK Took My Baby Away, which seems
to reflect the anger Joey felt when Linda left him for Johnny.
Although Joey’s brother Mickey Leigh denies that.
Linda says in a Billboard interview with Nicky Gostin:
They were friendly-ish. Joey always really wanted to have a hit single
and Johnny didn’t really care and of course when I left Joey, yeah …

Joey was a liberal Jew and Johnny very conservative of Irish origin.
When Joey was in the hospital dying of cancer,
Johnny refused to telephone him.

  1. Wasn’t the KKK took my baby away written way before he even met linda?

    I was under the impression it was satirical due to it was written for a black girlfriend he had and the family didn’t want them being together.

    • That is what Joey’s brother Mickey Leigh says in his book I Slept with Joey Ramone: A Family Memoir. It was about a black hippie girl called Wilna in 1971.
      Linda started something with Johnny in 1980 or earlier
      and the KKK song came out in 1981, so I still think Joey used it to get back at Johnny.

  2. All I know is I can’t stand Linda, she’s an awful, conniving money grubbing witch. She’s lucky any of the Ramones even looked at her, much less became involved with her. Read Mickey Leigh’s book again where he details how Linda tried to get Joey to buy her a $3,000 engagement ring when she knew he hadn’t had much in savings. In another book by Roxy Ramone, Linda’s described as going on shopping sprees with Joey’s money, and hiding her purchases from him. Linda is only famous because of the Ramones, not because she’s ever done anything kind, compassionate or even held down a real job since she was an 18 year old groupie. Get mad at me if you wish, but I have read enough books where she is mentioned in detail, and I think she is nothing but human filth. End of rant.
