A statue in memory of Johnny Ramone set to be unveiled Friday, Jan. 14 by his wife, Linda, at Hollywood Forever Cemetery. The official Ramones website says
JOHNNY'S MONUMENT A statue in memory of Johnny Ramone will be unveiled by his wife, Linda Ramone, on January 14. The location is the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles, California, and it will be not far from where Dee Dee is buried. There will be a public ceremony with speeches by some of Johnny's closest friends - thus keeping with the spirit of Johnny's own words, written in stone:

"If a man can judge success by how many great friends he has, then I have been very successful."
-Johnny Ramone not far from where bandmate Dee Dee Ramone is buried.


Mark your calendars!

If anybody knows what time the ceremony starts, post it in the comments section. We couldn't find that detail.
