Meet Redbone Ramone

Make no bones about it: Redbone Ramone can keep perfect time behind his kit with no drumsticks required. All he needs is a pair of sturdy humerus bones, the chest-thumping bass of fellow musician Thrash, and the vociferous cheers of the crowd to pound home a perfectly syncopated message of metal mayhem. Ruminate on these Redbone facts:

  • Better known as the mohawked drummer of The Reapers, celebrity pitchman for My Pillow
  • Embarrasing secret: Side hustles as an Uber Eats driver
  • Nickname: Mr. T-Bone, Yondu Jr., John Boneham
  • Cause of death: Used to play drums for Spinal Tap
