Richie Ramone is the fastest, most powerful drummer who ever played with the legendary punkrock
band the Ramones.
In 1983, he was recruited into the Ramones, and first appeared with the band on their
Subterranean Jungle tour. For the next years, Richie performed over 500 shows around the world
with the punk rock originators and wrote several critically acclaimed songs and fan-favorites for
the albums Animal Boy, Too Tough to Die and Halfway to Sanity.
His song "Somebody Put Something in My Drink" was a mainstay in the Ramones set right up
until their final show in 1996. As Joey Ramone said, “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.” And now fans can enjoy that experience firsthand!
