Richie Ramone is famed for his time spent drumming for the iconic New York City rock band the Ramones. He spent almost five frenzied years, between 1983 and 1987, charging his way around the world; playing over 500 shows, whilst recording three albums. Praised by Joey Ramone for putting ‘the spirit back into the band’, Richie was the only Ramones drummer to be credited as the sole composer and writer of six Ramones songs.
In 2013, Richie Ramone catapulted back onto the rock’n’roll music scene with the release of solo debut album: ‘Entitled’. He now continues to uproot modern music culture with ‘Cellophane’ – a stripped down, raw rock album; fully loaded with gravelly vocals, catchy guitar riffs and 80’s punk-rock vigour.
Aggressively catchy, ‘Cellophane’s’ powerful lead single ‘I Fix This’ perfectly reflects the ‘take no bollocks’ pure-punk attitude of the album. Yet showcasing Richie’s musical versatility – the heartfelt ‘I’m Not Ready’ delivers a more personal, toned-down melody. Other noteworthy tracks include Depeche Mode cover ‘Enjoy the Silence’ and ‘Pretty Poison’, which was penned by Richie during the 1980’s.

“Attack of the Animal Boy! World Tour” is an un-missable event for fans of the Ramones, Nirvana, Sex Pistols and Green Day. Throughout the shows Richie Ramone will be accompanied by his steadfast band of Rock’n’Roll veterans: lead guitarist Ronnie Simmons; bassist and vocalist Clare Misstake, and drummer/rhythm guitar player Ben Reagan.
