Eddie Vedder Leaves a Note for Johnny Ramone at Ramones Museum
According to the museum’s Facebook page, Vedder and his guitar tech Rick Weinman spent a few hours at the museum, reminiscing about Vedder’s close friend Johnny Ramone and sharing stories for those in attendance.
Museum officials stated, “We’d like to thank Eddie, Rick and all Pearl Jam fans to be the coolest, nicest and most loyal people we ever met. We’re impressed by your passion, excitement and true love for music. We know some of you traveled from far away places to see Pearl Jam perform and we here at Ramones Museum miss you already.”
Before exiting the establishment, Vedder left behind a letter which read: “Long live the Ramones … the wave that is all breaking all the time – and to my good friend Johnny, how I miss you … Everyday and forever … Wish you were here … Then again, you are.”
Vedder gave the tribute speech for the Ramones when the band went into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and he would also join the group Zeke for a cover of ‘I Believe in Miracles’ for the ‘We’re a Happy Family’ Ramones tribute compilation.
