"New Solo Career"
Bassist Dee Dee quit the band in 1989 to pursue a solo career. He did continue to write and provide songs for the Ramones band. His first album was a rap/rock collection released under the moniker "Dee Dee King". It had the Cold War/wrestling parody "The Crusher". That tune also appeared on the last Ramones studio album "Adios, Amigos!" re-recorded with lead vocals by Dee Dee's replacement C.J. (sometimes "C. Jay") Ramone. Dee Dee guested on the Ramones' final show, along with members of Rancid, Motorhead and more. He released a few more solo albums and he married a German girl MUCH younger than he was. However, he kept battling addiction to Chinese Rock heroin and he lost his fight with it in 2002. He was 50.
