The special Johnny Ramone and Ramones outdoor event presented by
Johnny's wife Linda Ramone in association with the JRA (Johnny Ramone
Army), was held fifth time. This was in memory of Johnny Ramone on
Saturday October 3rd, 2009 at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los
Angeles, CA, USA.
Upper photo: Johnny Ramone's wife Linda Ramone discussing with Jenny
Lens, who is released for example Punk Pioneers book. Without
body of work we would not have hundreds of photos of the
Ramones. The Ramones allowed Jenny Lens to follow them throughout their
first California tour, August, 1976, but she chose to only shoot them in
LA three times during 1977, and then twice during 1978. You can find
interviews with both, Linda and Jenny, from my new book Ramones:
Soundtrack Of Our Lives. They both also gave me fabulous photos
to my book.

was touring with Dee Dee, Barbara and Chase Manhattan in Scandinavia in
2000. Photo take by Gaston Sanchez of Ramonesforever.com.
