Rob Zombie will be hosting the tenth anniversary tribute to friend Johnny Ramone on August 24 in LA. The event, presented by his wife Linda Ramone who has held the tribute every year in his memory, will take place at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. Says Zombie of The Ramones, “The Ramones were the great American rock band of our time. Endlessly copied but never equaled.”
Zombie will be leading Steve Jones (Sex Pistols) and Duff Mckagan, through a series of Ramones classics, and it will benefit cancer research through the Johnny Ramone Foundation and the Center for Applied Medicine at USC.
The event at the Hollywood Forever cemetery which includes a statue tribute to Johnny Ramone, will be broadcast on giant screens to the overflow crowd.
