Johnny Ramone Tribute 2016
Hey Ho, Let’s Go! It’s Punk Rock Legends Night at the Annual Johnny Ramone Tribute presented by Linda Ramone at Hollywood Forever Cemetery!

STEVE JONES from the Sex Pistols and Jonesy’s Jukebox hosts this year’s party! Special guests HENRY ROLLINS from Black Flag and JOHN DOE from X will also appear. Watch the ultimate punk rock double feature, ROCK ‘N’ ROLL HIGH SCHOOL and LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE FABULOUS STAINS on a giant wall on the beautiful Fairbanks Lawn!

The cast of Rock ’n’ Roll High School will reunite for the first time in 30 years - John Doe will moderate a Q&A with PJ Soles, Mary Woronov, Clint Howard, Vince Van Patten, Roger Corman, Allen Arkush, and the writers of the film, Richard Whitley and Russ Dvonch!

We will also have special guests from Ladies and Gentlemen, The Fabulous Stains!

DJ Howie Pyro will be spinning tunes all night.

Metallica guitarist Kirk “Von” Hammett’s special collection of horror movie memorabilia will also be on display for fans to explore. Rarely seen in public, the collection includes a treasure trove of movie posters, props, toys and costumes from his personal collection.
Morrison Hotel Gallery will have a pop-up exhibition of Ramones and punk photography.
Visit the special Johnny Ramone pop-up shop and stop by his statue, which will be decorated specially for the event.
Finally, no one will go hungry! Bring your own picnic (beer and wine permitted) or get food from one of the food trucks that will be attending or the on-site concessions stand.
Proceeds from the celebration will benefit the Johnny and Linda Ramone Foundation, supporting prostate cancer research, and Dr. David Agus at the Center for Applied Medicine, the Keck School of Medicine, USC.
Special thanks to KLOS, Cold Cock Whiskey, Angel City Brewery, and Punk Rock Militia Wine for their support! Gabba Gabba Hey!

*****************
About ROCK ‘N’ ROLL HIGH SCHOOL: A group of rock-music-loving students, with the help of the Ramones, take over their school to combat its newly installed oppressive administration.

About LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE FABULOUS STAINS: Corinne Burns (Diane Lane) is a typical frustrated teenager living in a nowhere town until she catches punk band the Looters. Bewitched by the whole punk scene, she and her fledgling band, the Stains, join the tour, and in no time at all become media magnets. The band forms a rabid following of young girls, while Corrine begins a relationship with Looters singer Billy (Ray Winstone). As the Stains get bigger and bigger, however, Corinne's ambition gets the better of her.
