Prior to joining the Ramones, Ward served in the United States Marine Corps. He was a fan of the Ramones, particularly of Dee Dee Ramone, before joining the band, and later played with him in a band called The Remains or The Ramainz, which was formed by Dee Dee Ramone, Marky Ramone and Dee Dee’s wife, Barbara Zampini (Barbara Ramone). He also played with Axe, Los Gusanos, and is currently playing in Bad Chopper. Christopher Joseph Ward (born October 8, 1965), better known as C. J. Ramone, is an American musician known as the bassist for punk rock group The Ramones from 1989 to 1996.

When it comes to the subject of rock and roll, DEAD HALOS doesn’t claim to be re-inventors of the proverbial wheel, nor do they wish to live exclusively in the so-called glory days of years past. The Louisville, Kentucky-based band, which includes Tony Ash (Trophy Wives) on guitar, Aaron Sortman (Waxeater, Neighbor) on drums, Max Balliet (The Ladybirds) on guitar, Cassie Green on bass and Kenosha, Wisconsin’s Stephanie Vogt (Donoma) on vocals, is here to be heard, loud and proud, whether you approve or not. The band’s musical influences are displayed proudly on their collective sleeves, but make no mistake, this is no half-assed nostalgia act or pleasant stroll down memory lane. DEAD HALOS are doing their goddamndest to revitalize the spirit and sound of real rock and roll music, the kind we all grew up loving until, like so many things before, it became a watered down parody of itself. Come one come all. Bring your party hat, your dancing shoes….and maybe some earplugs.
THE PINK VULTURES succinctly describe themselves as “American Punk Rock n’ Roll.” What more needs to be said? Nothing, really, other than their members — Daryl Sullivan, Chris Payne, Brent Starkey, Karri Bedan, and Ella Jean Lumpkins — are an assortment of long-time scene veterans and relatively fresh faces. But they’ll let their music speak for themselves!
