JOEY RAMONE Birthday Benefit To Take Place Next Month
Billboard.com is reporting that THE STROKES, THE DICTATORS' Andy Shernoff, the DEAD BOYS' Cheetah Chrome and DKT with guest vocalists Corey Glover and Marshall Crenshaw will perform at the Joey Ramone Birthday Benefit next month.
The event will be held May 19 at New York's Irving Plaza on what would have been the late RAMONES frontman's 55th birthday. Ramone died of cancer in 2001. Also on tap to appear is Richie Ramone, who manned the drum kit from 1983-1987 but was estranged from other group members for many years.
Proceeds from the show will be donated to the Lymphoma Research Foundation. Also in the works is an exhibition of work from well-known rock photographers in the days leading up to the bash.
