In 2007 he released an album with his new band Bad Chopper.

The Ramones: Marky, CJ, Joey and Johnny.
Born on this day in 1948 John William Cummings (AKA Johnny Ramone).
"Five years ago, Johnny Ramone picked me to sing 'Here Today, Gone Tomorrow'. He wanted me to sing it on a Ramones tribute record where many of his friends and other artists were covering his songs. Johnny was one of my best friends, and I promised him before he passed away that I would include that song on my record. He was very sick but wanted to play guitar on it as long as he was sitting down. Unfortunately, while we were recording the basic track, he died." (from the liner notes to the album 'Now What' by Lisa Marie Presley).
Written in honor of Johnny Ramone whilst driving home from his funeral. It also led Pearl Jam to record their first video for 8 years to promote the song and the up and coming self-titled album in 2006.
