ROB ZOMBIE, DUFF MCKAGAN To Perform RAMONES Covers At 10th Annual JOHNNY RAMONE Tribute

Rob Zombie will host the tenth-anniversary Johnny Ramone tribute bash 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, Zombie will be joined by Johnny's dear friend, punk legend Steve Jones (SEX PISTOLS) as well as Duff McKagan (GUNS N' ROSES) plus very special surprise guests for some RAMONES hits and punk rock classics. The concert will be held in the Hollywood Forever's Masonic Lodge and broadcast outside to the overflow crowd.

Fred Armisen ("Portlandia", "Saturday Night Live") will also be appearing at the tribute and will bring along his punk rock alter ego, Ian Rubbish, to the festivities.

METALLICA guitarist Kirk "Von" Hammett's special collection of horror movie memorabilia will also be on hand for fans to check out. Rarely seen in public, the collection includes a treasure trove of movie posters, props, toys and costumes from his personal collection.

There will also be an autograph signing session featuring the cult stars from Rob Zombie's "The Devil's Rejects".

Cited by both Time and Rolling Stone magazines as one of the most influential guitarists ever, the Johnny Ramone Tribute brings family, friends and fans together to celebrate the late punk guitarist's music and legacy with question-and-answer sessions, screenings of Johnny's favorite movies and musical guests. Past participants have included Tommy Ramone, Johnny Depp, Rob Zombie, Lisa Marie Presley, Priscilla Presley, Chris Cornell, Nick Cage, Kirk Hammett, Steve Jones, Rose McGowan, Henry Rollins, John Waters, RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, Shepard Fairey, Dita Von Teese and Billy Zoom, among many others.
