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.
