The STROKES and the DEAD BOYS will team up to perform at a tribute to late Ramones legend Joey Ramone next month (MAY06). The Joey Ramone Birthday Benefit will be staged at the Irving Plaza in New York City on 19 May (06) on what would have been the late Ramones frontman's 55th birthday. The punk icon lost his battle with cancer in 2001. Proceeds from the show will be donated to the Lymphoma Research Foundation.
