CJ Ramone played the Rickshaw Theatre in Vancouver on May 4, 2017. That afternoon before the show, he dropped by Roundhouse Radio to chat with Cory Price. CJ and the band were running late due to van troubles and border delays but the quick 15 minute talk turned into a cool 45 minute interview. He spoke at length about how he learned to play bass guitar and join the Ramones, how his youth invigorated the band, his music dedicated to the four original members, and more.
I was invited down to meet CJ and take some photos. (Thanks Cory!) What a great experience. Although I had quickly met him during his previous stop in Vancouver, this was much more intimate and I discovered we shared many musical interests, including The Doors, Black Sabbath, The Damned, Social Distortion, Kyuss and Motörhead.
