CJ RAMONE'S SHOW DATES IN FEBRUARY 2010

Line-up:
CJ Ramone:
singer-bassist.
Daniel Rey: guitar-singer.
Brant Björk: drummer.

CJ Ramone, Brant Björk of ex-Kyuss/ ex-Fu-Manchu and "Ramones producer" Daniel Rey played together in 2009 and in January-February 2010.
Brant released Gods & Goddesses in late March, 2010 (in Europe and in USA). He had a tour in March-April. I did an newspaper interview with Brant on April 28, 2010. He had great memories of shows with CJ and Daniel. I asked his opinion if he would like to play with CJ and Daniel in future?: "If CJ calls me up and ask me to play and I am not busy touring, I would love to do it again."
Michael Stamberg has been drummer in most of CJ's shows in 2010-2013.
February 17, 2010, High, Tokyo, Japan.
February 18, 2010, High, Tokyo, Japan.
February 19, 2010, Cyclone, Tokyo, Japan.

CJ's bass got stolen. Help to find it:
Yuki Kuroyanagi of the Ramones Fan Club Japan (and author of the I Love Ramones book) wrote me on February 22, 2010. As you can see above, CJ Ramone was in Tokyo, Japan in February, 2010. CJ's original custom Mosrite bass (only one) got stolen by somebody. Yuki and other fans are trying to find it in Japan. But instruments can also be sold easily to other countries. Keep watching after instrument on Ebay and other net and regular stores etc. Bad guy can't sell it easily. Also bass is easy to recognize as it has serial number: "000CJ."
If you has some information, please send me an E-mail here.
You can see CJ with his bass in photos in right. So bass is white, circle strummerville-sticker is on white-body, CJ Ramone name sigh is on head on it.
I also included newspaper article Yuki Kuroyanagi's friend wrote of this subject. You can print here flyer/poster she made.
CJ told bass was stolen after second Tokyo show. He, Daniel and Brant had otherwise great time in Japan and CJ told they wanna continue in their way to let people know the legacy of Ramones through with their band.
Yuki as well did mention, how shows were really great and they were supported by boss of Mosrite Japan. Read more in Ramones Fan Club Japan site.

January 17, 2010, The Continental, New York, NYC, USA.
This was be a special night, as this was first reunion night of "real" The Continental with artists who had played a lot at the Continental in past.

The Continental club is still on St. Marks Place in New York. It closed it's doors on September 17, 2006, after 15 years, and it re-opened on October 11, 2006 (9PM). Main difference after re-union was that bands will not be playing anymore at The Continental - only mainly acoustic shows and it is "trendy bar." Future will tell if there is again regular shows?
Joey, Dee Dee, Marky and CJ had played there really many shows or did guest appearances. I has on my books and on this site many reviews of the shows at The Continental. Like I added things already in 1996-1997 when Joey and Dee Dee had shows there...

CANCELLED SHOWS IN SOUTH-AMERICA IN 2005

CJ Ramone was going to play four shows in South-America with Daniel Rey and Vom of Die Toten Hosen, but...
Rockaway Records, as the main promoter of this tour, has to sadly inform that the tour that CJ Ramone was planned to do in South-America on October 2005, has been cancelled by the artist's (CJ's) own decision: "We are very, very sorry to inform such bad news but there's no further action we can do to try to convince CJ Ramone about this. He has some personal problems that demands that he stays in the USA for the following months and don't let him plan any live appearence in the near future."

Therefore his following 4 appearences:
Wednesday October 19, 2005, Neuquen, Argentina
Thursday October 20, 2005, Rosario, Argentina
Friday October 21, 2005, Buenos Aires, Argentina
Saturday October, 22, 2005, (Punk Rock Invasion 2 show) Sao Paulo, Brazil
and all events related to the record release parties of tributeCD Todos Somos Ramones are cancelled by today (September 21).

CJ Ramone is very, very sorry about this cancellation and wants to apologise to all the South-American fans, but he really can't make the tour as planned.
I (Jari-Pekka Laitio-Ramone) was also coming to the South-America to see some shows. I paid my flight tickets already in early August and then this was a sad result...
Rockaway Records was worked so hard to get this tour happen, and already spent so much money that we fans would become happy.
