Former Bassist of U.S. Band Ramones to Perform in HavanaHAVANA, Cuba, Aug 15 (acn) The ex-bassist of the mythical U.S. punk rock band Ramones, Christopher Joseph Ward, will offer two concerts in Cuba as part of the Habanarte Festival to be held in this capital on September 3-13.

The former Ramone will arrive in Havana accompanied by his group, composed of Dave Soto and Dan Root, guitarists of the California band The Adolescents, a sort of Californian punk gospels.
The concerts by CJ Ramone in Cuba will be a preview of the Patria Grande Festival, an event that will have its second edition on November 12-18, with the participation of the Argentinean band Carajo, a prominent rock group in Latin America.
CJ, in the famous New York band, participated in the recording of the albums Loco Live (1991) Mondo Bizarro (1992) and Goodbye Friends! (1995), among other CDs.
The Ramones, a leader punk group, entered the Hall of Fame of Rock and Roll in 2002.
