A breast cancer charity concert in New York is hastily being revamped as a tribute to organiser Johnny Ramone.

Ramone booked Blondie and The Strokes to play at the Cedars Sinai Cancer Research Center benefit on 8 October (04) before he died last month (SEP04), and now stars are lining up to play at the punked-up show and pay a final tribute to the guitarist.

Sonic Youth, Andrew Wk, Sean Lennon and ALAN VEGA have joined the lineup.

Ramone lost his battle with prostate cancer on 15 September (04).
