In 2011, the Recording Academy gave the Ramones a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in Los Angeles, where all three of the band's drummers (Tommy, Marky and Richie Ramone) stood beneath the same roof for the first time ever. In 2012, Richie was the only surviving Ramone featured on the second Joey Ramone solo album, “Ya Know?” 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." 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-favorite 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.”
**His first solo record, ENTITLED, is out on DC JAM RECORDS — featuring new killer tracks PLUS all-new recordings of I Know Better Now, Smash you and yeah, Somebody Put Something In My Drink.http://www.richieramone.com/

As another grand jury fails to indict it leaves us wondering is there a such thing as justice in America for those of us with brown skin. Many argue that we are living in a post racial society, where racism ceases to exist; but how can that be when another unarmed black man is tragically murder by those who are suppose to serve and protect. Those who have hidden behind their badges when they are videotape doing wrong. Eric Garner is just another example of how flawed and unjust the American judicial system is when it comes to facilitating justice for minorities. Please join Ray and Devon in this special presentation of Truf Bros. Radio as they welcome very special guests Toni Breedlove, Theo Brooks, Ramone Garrett, and Sam Lee as they discuss police brutality and minority injustice as Truf Bros Radio proudly presents our special presentation
