Ramones Collaborator Arturo Vega Dead At 65

(Classic Rock) Ramones collaborator Arturo Vega has died at the age of 65. The Mexican artist created the band's iconic "Hey Ho Let's Go" eagle/baseball bat/band member's name logo.

Vega continued to work with them for 22 years, firstly as their lighting tech and later as their archivist. He also provided a home in his New York loft for Joey and Dee Dee during the band's early days.

The San Francisco Bay Guardian says: "He was a gentleman and a warm-hearted, soft-spoken genial man with a dry wit. It was always a joy to hear from him. Like it was 1979 for ever. We'll miss you, Artie." More rock news.
