Johnny Ramone monument

A statue in memory of legendary “Ramones” guitarist Johnny Ramone will be unveiled by his wife Linda in a public ceremony on January 14 at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles. The monument will be located not far from where Johnny’s bandmate Dee Dee is also buried. A ceremony will take place from 3-5 PM and feature speeches from some of Johnny’s closest friends. The bronze statue, created by artist Wayne Toth, will capture Johnny in his memorable stance playing his Mosrite guitar. A quote from the guitarist is written in stone: “If a man can judge success by how many great friends he has, then I have been very successful”.

Marky on Jonny's autobiography

Marky Ramone has posted an update on the band’s official website about the unfinished autobiography Johnny was working on when he passed away in September. 


“I’m getting letters from fans about Johnny’s book (that he didn’t finish), I want to say a few words about that. Johnny was writing his book, but unfortunately it wasn’t finished. His writer called me for an interview, about 4 months ago, and was very professional. I just hope that there isn’t going to be someone else completing Johnny’s book, it wouldn't be accurate, and we definitely don't need another book of quotes. He did tell me that he was going to make a book that included posters, backstage passes, old photos and other interesting things to look at. I’d like to see that, it sounds cool! Thanks for your positive e-mail and curiosity about me and Mickey, doing some shows together. It should be fun for everyone. Have a happy holiday, and a great new year. see ya soon”.
