Richie Ramone (born Richard Reinhardt, August 11, 1957) is an American drummer best known for being the drummer for the iconic punk band the Ramones, from February 1983 until August 1987. He was the only Ramones drummer to be credited as the sole composer and writer of 6 Ramones songs,[1] and as of 2017, he is one of the three surviving members of the band (the others being Marky Ramone and C.J. Ramone). And YES he will be playing songs by THE RAMONES tonite!

READERSHIP HOSTILE is a cathartic collision of deathrock, goth, early punk and contemporary psych propelled by an effervescent, force-of-nature frontwoman Adrienne Pearson (formerly of Radio Vago and Shoot Out The Lights) Darkly ornate yet visceral, the band ambushed its native Los Angeles with a string of startling performances in 2013, before bottling its organic on-stage aura into a brutally beautiful debut EP.

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 performed in over 500 showssaround the world with the Ramones. Richie 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 favorite 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 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 notes, "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."
