CJ Ramone covers Tom Waits’ “Pony” and announces extensive US/European tour

Former Ramones bass player CJ Ramone has released another song, and this one is near and dear to the heart of yours truly. It’s a track called “Pony,” and it’s a cover of the Tom Waits classic of the same name. Waits’ version appears on his 1999 masterpiece, “Mule Variations,” while CJ’s version appears on his upcoming full-length, “American Beauty.” Check it out below.

But wait…there’s more! CJ Ramone also announced a pantload of US and European tour dates that’ll keep him busy from mid-April through mid-July. The North American run features support from NY punks Big Eyes. Check out the full rundown below (under the video).

“American Beauty” is due out March 17th on Fat Wreck Chords.
