The birthday tribute to Ramone will take place on August 24th at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. Zombie will be hosting a screening of his movie The Devil's Rejects and leading an all-star band -- including Duff McKagan of Guns n' Roses and Steve Jones of TheSex Pistols -- through a selection of Ramones covers.
