On Nov. 13, former Ramones frontman Joey Ramone, backed by 22 Jacks, will headline a CD release party at L.A.'s infamous Viper Room for the Iggy Pop tribute We Will Fall.

Released earlier this month on Royalty Records, the compilation features contributions from 20 artists including the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Joan Jett, The Misfits, Pansy Division, Sugar Ray and a reunited version of Blondie. The compilation contains extensive liner notes and rare photographs of Pop, a trailblazing rocker known for ferocious live performances and raw musical energy.

All proceeds from both the concert and the CD will benefit LIFEbeat, a music-industry AIDS charity.

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
