Photo set, 2017 Johnny Ramone Tribute in Hollywood, CA

July 30, 2017,  Annual Johnny Ramone Tribute at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Hollywood, Los Angeles, CA

Howie Pryo provided a killer DJ set before live music featuring Steve Jones, Billy Idol and Fred Armisen. Linda Ramone and Rosanna Arquette welcomed the crowd and brought up a few quest speakers:  including Cinespia’s founder, John Wyatt and Moby. This year’s movie was one of my all-time faves, Buffalo ’66!  Vincent Gallo introduced the film and also treated us to a few extra short films- a Patriotic piece and Honey Bunny.  The night also included a memorial photo slideshow to remember Chris Cornell.

Chris Cornell tribute

RIP Chris Cornell.  Words as difficult to type as they are to fathom.  Last week, the Ultimate Jam fam gathered at the Whisky to celebrate the life of Chris Cornell through his music.  Photos from the event are below, followed by some of my own personal favorite memories- tickets and photos that I took of Chris.

My fave lyric, from Seasons: “I want to fly above the storm. But you can’t grow feathers in the rain” – Chris Cornell

Some of my personal souvenirs and photo memories:
