Watch Billie Joe Armstrong, Duff McKagan And More Perform At Johnny Ramone Tribute Show
Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong, Guns N’ Roses’ Duff McKagan, Sex Pistols’ Steve Jones and actor/comedian Fred Armisen all performed as part of The Johnny Ramone Tribute at Hollywood Forever on August 26.
Watch footage of the musicians playing a bunch of Ramones hits, as well as a cover of Sex Pistols’ Pretty Vacant. On the night, Billie Joe told Forbes of the importance of The Ramones’ logo to him: “When I was a kid I watched on late night TV was a show they were playing in Ann Arbor and if you look it up it’s on YouTube. They sounded so fucking good and the energy in the crowd was so completely into it and they had the big banner behind them with the big symbol and I always remember that. The imprint is permanently imprinted into my brain.”
