Deserting the Marines to replace bassist Dee Dee Ramone in The Ramones, CJ Ramone, born Christopher Joseph Ward, played with the punk rock legends from 1989 until 1996, when the band splintered. A few random gigs later (including being the door guy at New York’s techno church nightclub Limelight), Ward played in several bands including The Remainz, a Ramones tribute band with the original Ramones bassist Dee Dee Ramone, his wife Barbara Zampini, and Marky Ramone (that is, until Dee Dee Ramone died of a heroin overdose). On tour in support of American Beauty, Ward continues the American punk rock legacy that was The Ramones. With Big Eyes.
