Hello everyone! I've got a question about Johnny Ramones from Ramones(obviously) stack! He got 3 Marshall heads on top of each other. Why does it have it like that and does he "benefit" from it?

Thank you

I ran over two squirrels at once one time. They were chasing after each other in the street, and I swerved to avoid them, but ended up with one under each tire. Still my greatest driving accomplishment to date.

Clean on a Ramones gig?

But I've seen him with 3 cabs and 3 heads. 1 head on 1 cab maybe?

^ If he does have 3 half stacks on stage, not all of them will be on all the time.

It probably is a clean/dirty/backup situation.

I could be wrong on this, but I remember reading that in the seventies he used two half stacks for smaller gigs, and two full's for larger gigs(stadiums, and that type of thing) I know they played blisteringly loud, I'm pretty sure the third was backup, or just for show

there's his rig, I'd believe it. The third head and cab are most likely for backup, those guys played tons and tons of gigs so I'm sure at least at one an amp failed.
