Becoming a Ramone

CJ Ramone with the new Dee Dee Ramone Precision Bass.

Christopher Joseph Ward, better known as CJ Ramone, really only went to audition to play bass for famed New York punk rock band Ramones because he was a big fan.

“I wasn’t intimidated; I wasn’t nervous because I wasn’t going there to get the audition. I was going there to meet the band,” shared Ward.

After a few callbacks, however, he realized he actually had a chance to get the gig. And that’s when he had an “oh shit” moment because he still hadn’t been officially discharged from the Marine Corps.

Hear Ward tell the story about how he became CJ Ramone in the video below.
