Johnny Ramone Tribute 8/24/2014 @Hollywood Forever Cemetery

As many of you know one of the greatest guitar legends of punk rock, Johnny Ramone,  is memorialized at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery.  On Sunday, August 24, 2014, the tenth year of his death was marked by a special event.  Johnny’s statue is surrounded by quotes from a few of his friends including Rob Zombie.  Zombie was joined by a host of friends for this special night.

The night included a performance with unannounced guest Billy Idol, as well as Steve Jones, Fred Armisen, Rob Zombie, Duff McKagen, Piggy D, and Ginger Fish.  Other guests on hand included Linda Ramone, Slim Jim Phantom, and the cast of The Devil’s Rejects: Sheri Moon Zombie, Sid Haig, Bill Mosely, Danny Trejo, and Leslie Easterbrook.

Here are a few candids of the guests and performers.

After the tribute concert there was a showing of Rob Zombie’s The Devil’s Rejects.

It was a great night to pay tribute to a legend, watch and hear a great performance tribute, and finished with a killer movie from Johnny’s dear friends while surrounded by loved ones, colleagues, and many, many fans.
