Ramones drummer to hit the beats in Byron Bay today

HE WAS born Richard Reinhardt in 1957, but the name Richie Ramone suits him best and he’s coming to Byron Bay to show us why.

He was The Ramones drummer from February 1983 to August 1987, although in his first months with the group he broke the tradition of adopting the Ramones surname and instead performed under the stage name Richie Beau.

Richie was the only drummer to sing lead vocals on Ramones songs, including Can’t Say Anything Nice and the unreleased Elevator Operator, as well a number of Ramones demos.

At the Great Northern Hotel, Byron Bay, tonight Thursday from 8pm.
