Marky Ramone supports Musicians without Borders

Marky Ramone will support Musicians without Borders with proceeds from his brand new beer brand, MARKY RAMONE’S CHOICE BEER. Marky Ramone’s Choice Beer was released on April 11 by Marky Ramone in cooperation with Cervesa Guineu from Catalunya, Spain.

Musicians without Borders will allocate the support to the Mitrovica Rock School, where young people from the two sides of the ethnically divided city of Mitrovica, Kosovo, come together through a shared love of rock music.

Marky Ramone is best known for the 15 years he spent drumming for the legendary punk rock band the Ramones. He continues to tour the world with his band, Marky Ramone’s Blitzkrieg, featuring various lead vocalists including Andrew W.K. and Michale Graves.

The Ramones was one of the most influential bands in the history of punk, and continues to be a huge inspiration to young bands all over the world, including our bands in Mitrovica.

“When I first heard Marky Ramone will make a donation to the Rock School, I was in disbelief our small Rock School is even heard of by someone like him. This is a huge boost for us all to continue playing rock music. The Ramones are legends here and we are very grateful to Marky for his support.” (Rock School student Milos, 16)

According to one Rock School teacher, over half of our students and friends in Mitrovica own a Ramones t-shirt. Don’t believe us? See for yourself!
