Ramones' drummer Marky Ramone knows that it's almost back to school time! The skinsman is currently organizing a charity concert in Hollywood to benefit his own newly-created scholarship fund. The lineup for the event has yet to be announced.
Marky will perform a full concert of music at the Musicians Institute Concert Hall on October 10.
The show will benefit the Marky Ramone Drum Scholarship at the Musicians Institute Concert Hall, with the full line-up, expected to be many of Ramone's rock star friends, set to be confirmed later this month. A Marky Ramone Drum Scholarship? Amen to that.
"I am very honored to be chosen as an artist for the scholarship program. Music for kids is very important to have," the drummer said. Simple, but effective.
This isn't the first time that Marky Ramone has become involved with educational programs! The drummer lent his name to a sex education campaign where condoms, lubricant and other resources were packaged inside a tin with Marky Ramone's emblem on its outside. Safe sex rules and is very important, especially when it comes in a collectible tin.
Are you interested in attending the benefit show? Or applying for the Marky Ramone scholarship?
