Format: DVD
Too Tough to Die began as a concert put together by legendary guitarist Johhny Ramone and his many friends in the music industry to pay tribute on the 30th anniversary of the original punk rock band The Ramones and raise funding for cancer research. The Ramones are not only among the most influential and beloved rock bands of all time, but are almost certainly the most famous band in history to never have a single legitimate smash hit. Countless bands imitated their way to massive success, but the originators of the punk rock art form kept paying their dues until the very end. But real music fans and the armies of musicians who first picked up an instrument and started a band immediately after hearing The Ramones know where it's at. With singer Joey Ramone having passed on in 2001 and original bassist/songwriter Dee Dee following the year after, Johhny and friends decided to commemorate the anniversary to pay tribute to the fallen heroes by planning a show to bring together many of the artists whose lives were changed forever upon discovering The Ramones. What wasn't planned was that by the time the concert came to pass, Johnny would be on his deathbed and unable to attend.

Too Tough to Die is a documentary consisting of interviews, classic Ramones clips, performances from the all-star concert, and even footage from Johnny's funeral. The festivities of the concert are exhilarating and the extremely heartfelt tributes to Johnny Ramone's legacy were beyond moving to a fan like myself. I was holding back tears at times. There are certainly better and more complete Ramones documentaries out there, but there has arguably never been a better tribute. The centerpiece of the film are the performances.

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.

I'm a Ramones fan, but my main reason for purchasing this DVD was because there are performances by 'X' and 'Joan Jett'. I didn't really care about the other bands featured, but I didn't mind watching them, and found that I enjoyed it for the most part. However I was very disappointed when at the end Joan Jett finally comes on and it's while the credits are rolling! What an insult to a great performer and artist! The picture is minimized while she is performing, so get this, you can see the credits! Whoever edited that was a moron.

I also thought it was dumb how while a performance was being shown it would abruptly cut to a scene of an interview right in the middle of it and basically have someone talking over the music. I thought that was very unnecessary and annoying. It would have made much more sense to either show an interview with the band and then cut to their performance or show all the interviews in one segment and then the show in it's entirety in the other.

All in all the DVD is definitely worth a purchase. Die hard Ramone fans as well as casual fans will enjoy it.

There is some great music here.The first two bands play non Ramones stuff though, pretty poorly and a bit inappropriately.
The interviews too often intrude on the music.
Some of the interviews seem to repeat stuff from 'The Turn of the Century'.
It shows what a great cover band the HC Peppers are. Dee Dee would be proud of their tattoos, and some credit is given to Dee Dee's song writing genius. We see Daniel Rey play, what tales of Dee Dee could he tell?
Johnny's guitar technique could have been much better explored and there really is no historical stuff about him, belying the title.
His demise is dealt with sensitively enough and we get to see and hear a bit from his wife Linda, though there are no interviews with Johnny himself in his twilight years.
Joan Jet's, Judy is a Punk , is relegated to the credits, whilst it's better than the Rollin's hollered one.
The guy from Rancid plays power chords.
Overall, better than some rockumentaries (recently tried to watch the appalling Sympathy for the Devil, and I'm a Stones fan!).
Not sure there is enough background stuff for the Ramones naive.
Like a Ramones concert, it makes you wish you'd been there though, so it's an effective production with a great ironic title; courtesy of Joey?
Three and a half maybe.
