Ramone To Headline Iggy Pop Tribute In L.A.

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.
