Sex Pistols' Steve Jones and Duff McKagan for Ramones Tribute
Sex Pistol Steve Jones and Guns N'Roses' Duff McKagan will play at the 10th-anniversary Johnny Ramone tribute show at Los Angeles' Hollywood Forever Cemetery on August 24. This year's event will be presented by Johnny Ramone's wife, Linda Ramone.
For the all-star live jam, Rob Zombie will also join in for a show of Ramones hits and punk classics.
Metallica's Kirk “Von” Hammett (as he's billed) will not play, but his collection of horror movie memorabilia will also be on hand for fans to check out. Rarely seen in public, the collection includes a wealth of movie posters, props, toys and costumes from his personal collection.
Past participants have included Tommy Ramone, Johnny Depp, Rob Zombie, Chris Cornell, Nick Cage, Kirk Hammett, Henry Rollins and Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Here's punk vet Steve Jones and Duff McKagan launching the event, the last ever? Steve Jones promises “a lot more surprises than before.”
