"It's like one big party...I come out front for a little bit to kick the kids in the head and let them steal my jewellery...It's dangerous" - Richie Ramone
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 first appeared with the band on their Subterranean Jungle tour.
Richie performed in over 500 shows around the world with the Ramones and wrote several critically-acclaimed and fan-favourite songs for the albums Animal Boy, Too Tough to Die and Halfway to Sanity.
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". Richie’s vocal contributions were appreciated by Joey Ramone: "Richie's very talented and he's very diverse ... He really strengthened the band a hundred percent because he sings backing tracks, he sings lead, and he sings with Dee Dee's stuff. In the past, it was always just me singing for the most part."
