Marky Ramone Establishes Musicians Institute Scholarship

It’s ironic. The drummer who tended the beat on The Ramones’ “Rock And Roll High School” (for which Joey Ramone crooned, “I hate the teachers and the principal”) has established the Marky Ramone Drum Scholarship for Musicians Institute students. To raise revenue, Ramone has organized a benefit concert at the L.A. music school’s concert hall on Friday, October 8. In addition to Ramone, the all-star band will include Billy Sheehan (Mr. Big), Michael Graves (The Misfits), Jeff Duncan (Armored Saint), Marko DeSantis (Sugarcult) and Andy Hilfiger (King Flux) playing Ramones tunes.
