Another Frusciante ‘Blast from the Past Photo’


On January 14, 2005 the 8-ft, bronze, Johnny Ramone Memorial Statue was unveiled at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles, California by Johnny’s wife, Linda Ramone. The statue cost $100 000.

Hundreds turned out for the ceremony, including his widow Linda and Tommy Ramone, the only surviving band member. Many celebrities and friends of the late guitarist were also present; celebrities including actor Nicholas Cage, singers Eddie Vedder (Pearl Jam) and Rob Zombie, Lisa-Marie Presley (daughter of  Elvis Presley) and of course, John Frusciante. 

Johnny died from prostate cancer on September 15th 2004 at the age of 55.

About Squitherwitch

I've been a RHCP fan ever since I heard Under The Bridge way back in the mists of time. I brought BSSM and then their other albums but RHCP were just another band I listened to (I was a massive GNR fan at the time) but that changed once I heard Californication! I've been involved with the online RHCP scene since 2006, getting more heavily involved as time passed, and eventually the time was right to set up my own website dedicated to the band and thus, TheChiliSource was born. Since then I've also set up along with various Twitter, Facebook & Tumblr pages connected to my websites and RHCP.
