The Most Lovable Thing Since Kittens

I find this photo of Joey Ramone very moving. Joey was a misfit from Queens whose family wondered if he would ever lead a normal, productive life due to intense social maladjustment and a crippling case of OCD that he suffered with for most of his life. Of course, punk rock transformed him into a rock and roll superhero who used his social anxieties and comic book daydreams as fuel for some of the most exuberant, cathartic songs of his generation. This photo seems to capture that essence of the goofy misfit who achieves greatness. This photo is the most lovable thing since kittens.
