JOHNNY RAMONE at HOLLYWOOD FOREVER CEMETERY
Following Johnny’s death in 2004, an 8-foot-tall bronze memorial statue was erected in his honor at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles, CA.
The base of the statue includes inscriptions from some of Johnny’s closest friends
The aforementioned include Eddie Vedder, Lisa-Marie Presley, Rob Zombie, John Frusciante, Vincent Gallo and Johnny’s wife Linda Ramone, who oversees Johnny’s estate and works diligently to help preserve and protect the music of the Ramones.
In the 10 years since his passing, the statue has become a place for fans to gather and remember the rock icon and the birthplace of the yearly “Johnny Ramone Tribute” event. Linda Ramone built the event throughout the years . Johnny’s strength endures and his popularity with young and old alike remains timeless and immortal – just like the music and aesthetic he created with the legendary Ramones. Proceeds Benefit the Johnny and Linda Foundation and Dr. David Agus at the Center for Applied Medicine, The Keck School of Medecine.
