Former Ramones Drummer Richie Ramone Readies Solo Album

Richie Ramone, former drummer for the Ramones, is prepping his debut solo album, Entitled, for the fall. The LP arrives as a digital download September 17 and on CD and vinyl October 8.

Speaking with Billboard, Richie said that the album has been awhile in the making:

"We've had this in the works now for a while and we're really excited about working with DC-Jam to get this out. We put a lot of work in on creating this and we're really proud of it."

Richie plays drums and sings on the new album, while Tommy Bolan (Warlock) and Ben Reagan (the Feederz) handle guitar duties. Clare Misstake (Anti-Product) holds down the bass.

Richie told Exclaim that his guitar pairing works to a specific effect:

"My vision on this record was to get a shredder with a pop guitarist and combine that sound, and I really got what I wanted, too, it's really cool!"
