Most of the Ramones died far too young, but Johnny Ramone's legacy lives on at Hollywood Forever. An eight-foot-tall bronze statue of the punk-rock forefather is one of the cemetery's top draws, while the annual tribute to the Ramones guitarist is a beloved LA tradition. This year's tribute is hosted by iconoclastic director John Waters, who presents his 1990 film Cry Baby in honor of Johnny, who was a big fan of cult films. Vintage Ramones concert footage and music videos are also screened on the 42-foot mausoleum wall. Waters and Cry Baby costar Traci Lords — Johnny's longtime friend of Johnny — participate in a Q&A and autograph session. Come dressed as your favorite Ramones for the lookalike contest judged by Johnny's late wife Linda, along with Sex Pistol Steve Jones. Net proceeds benefit the Johnny Ramone Research fund at USC Westside Prostate Cancer Center.
