It is believed that Bassist of The Ramones, Douglas Glenn Colvin aka Dee Dee, aged 50, has passed away. He was found by his wife at his hollywood home on Wednesday June 5th. He was pronounced dead at 8.40pm by paramedics and the Los Angeles coroner's office press statement reads: "The investigator noted drug paraphernalia, including a single syringe on the counter, and we are handling it as a possible accidental overdose".
Former bandmate Joey Ramone passed away last April.
The Ramones website carries a statement of the bassist's passing with a quote paraphrased from the Bible "Make a joyful noise unto God, all ye lands; sing forth the honor of Dee Dee's name; make his praise glorious."
Rest in Peace Dee Dee.
