Richie Ramone is the fastest, most powerful drummer who ever played with the legendary punk rock band The Ramones.
Richie joined the Ramones in 1983 and performed with them in over 500 shows around the world. He was the only Ramones drummer to sing lead vocals and to be the sole composer of Ramones songs which appear on the albums Animal Boy, Too Tough To Die and Halfway to Sanity.
Richie's song, Somebody Put Something In My Drink, became a fan favourite and was included on Ramones Mania, the only Ramones album to go gold, as well as Loud, Fast Ramones: Their Toughest Hits, an album comprised of songs hand picked by Johnny Ramone as the Ramones' best works.
Punk Rock icon Joey Ramone remarked, "Richie saved the band as far as I'm concerned. He was the greatest thing to happen to the Ramones, He put the spirit back in the band."
On October 8, 2013, Richie released his first solo album, Entitled, which features new songs written by Richie as well as the new recordings of songs he wrote for the Ramones. Billboard notes, "Richie's 12 freshest cuts aim to please fans of both rock and metal with it's blend of power chord-chugging simplicity and guitar hero virtuosity."
Most recently, Richie released his second CD, Cellophane, in August 2017, followed up by a collectible, clear vinyl LP version, and a 7" single for the track "I Fix This".
