GUEST OF HONOR SID KROFFT

Many of the most colorful and fondly remembered children’s series of the 1970s and 1980s sprang from the imaginations of Sid and Marty Krofft. Their groundbreaking, live-action fantasy shows were mainstays of the Saturday morning airwaves, which had previously been the exclusive domain of cartoons. To this day, DVD box sets of beloved Krofft creations “H.R. Pufnstuf,” “Lidsville,” and “Land of the Lost” are brisk sellers, a testament to the artistry and charm of the Krofft brothers and the magical spell they cast on generations of TV viewers.

Guest Announcement Richie Ramone

No conversation about rock music is complete without the Ramones, and no discussion about the Ramones is credible without noting that Richie Ramone was the band’s most musically prolific and powerful drummer.

Richie was in the Ramones from February 1983 until August 1987. He was the only drummer to be credited as a composer, writer, and lead vocalist of a Ramones song (six in total) which appear on the Ramones albums Animal Boy, Too Tough to Die and Halfway to Sanity.

Punk rock icon Joey Ramone remarked, “Richie saved the band as far as I’m concerned. He was the greatest thing to happen to the Ramones. He put the spirit back in the band.”

Richie continues to write and record music, having successfully forayed into the film industry as both an actor and soundtrack composer. He made his acting debut in the indie films HEADCHEESE the movie (released in 2020), and quickly followed that up with the lead role in Protoge Moi, while also contributing tracks for both films. Most recently he will appear in Youthquake, and Vengeance 2 Bloodlines – coming out in 2022.

Richie recently completed a new single, I’m Not Afraid (Outro Records), along with a cover of Cry Little Sister for the soundtrack to Protoge Moi. The Last Time (the critically acclaimed tribute to his father who passed away in 2018), followed up the success of his second CD Cellophane (August 2017), and a 7″ single for the track I Fix This. Prior to this, Richie dropped his first solo album, Entitled, which featured new songs written by Richie as well as new recordings of the classic songs he wrote for the Ramones.

Richie’s song, Somebody Put Something in My Drink, became a Ramones fan favorite and was included on Ramones Mania, one of only two Ramones albums to go gold, as well as Loud, Fast Ramones: Their Toughest Hits, an album comprised of songs hand picked by Johnny Ramone as the Ramones’ best works.

In November 2018, Richie released his autobiography, I Know Better Now, on Backbeat Books.
