(lifePR) ( Flensburg, )
Richie Ramone is the fastest, most powerful drummer who ever played with the legendary punk rock band the Ramones. He joined the Ramones in 1983 and performed in over 500 shows around the world with the Ramones. Richie was the only Ramones drummer to sing lead vocals and 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 favorite and was included on “Ramones Mania,” the first 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. Richie also wrote "I'm Not Jesus," "(You) Can't Say Anything Nice," "I Know Better Now," "Humankind" and "Smash You" which became the title track for one of the Ramones' most successful re-releases, Smash You: Live '85. Richie's "I'm Not Jesus" took the Ramones in a heavier direction and has become a frequent cover tune for innumerable heavy metal bands. Punk rock icon, Joey Ramone, remarked that “[Richie] saved the band as far as I’m concerned. He’s 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 new recordings of songs he wrote for the Ramones. Billboard declared, “Richie's 12 freshest cuts aim to please fans of both rock and metal with its blend of power chord-chugging simplicity and guitar hero virtuosity.”
