This really was a punk rock all-stars kind of night. Billy Idol, along with former Sex Pistols' guitarist Steve Jones, Leigh Gorman and Clem Burke graced the stage of Shepard Fairey's Echo Park studio parking lot.

Fairey's SID: Superman Is Dead art gallery exhibit at Subliminal Projects on Friday paid homage to Sex Pistols' bassist Sid Vicious with photography from Dennis Morris as well as other artists' work inspired by the musician.

The group performed under the band name of Ritchie Love and played punk rock classics. Idol didn't disappoint and of course did a rendition of "Dancing With Myself, reported The Eastsider

Gorman co-founded Bow Wow Wow and Clem Burke served as the drummer for Iggy Pop, Ramones, and co-founded Blondie.
