The 9th Annual Johnny Ramone Tribute drew its largest crowd in the history of the event last night, packing the Hollywood Forever Cemetery lawn for an incredible evening celebrating the life of Johnny Ramone. Host John Waters, who was on hand to screen a director’s cut of his 1990 cult classic Cry-Baby, joined co-stars Traci Lords and Joe Dallesandro for a wildly popular autograph signing before taking the stage with Ricki Lake, James Intveld, and surprise guest Johnny Depp for a Q+A moderated by Steve Jones of the Sex Pistols.

“This event is something Johnny would have loved.  He was such a collector – autographs, movie posters, baseball cards, you name it. Having these amazing autograph signings and screening cult films – this is what Johnny was all about.  His legacy was important to him, and it’s the most important thing to me to do this event in the honor of my husband,” says Linda Ramone.
