On September 12, 2004, just two-and-a-half days before Johnny Ramone's death, a group of musicians and friends-among them Deborah Harry, The Dickies, X, Eddie Vedder, and The Red Hot Chili Peppers-staged a benefit concert to celebrate The Ramones' 30th anniversary and to raise money for cancer research. Mandy Stein's touching rockumentary captures that unforgettable evening.
Audio Commentary with Producer/Director Mandy Stein, Johnny Ramone's wife Linda Cummings Ramone and punk rocker Joe Sib.

I also thought it was dumb how while a performance was being shown it would abruptly cut to a scene of an interview right in the middle of it and basically have someone talking over the music. I thought that was very unnecessary and annoying. It would have made much more sense to either show an interview with the band and then cut to their performance or show all the interviews in one segment and then the show in it's entirety in the other.
All in all the DVD is definitely worth a purchase. Die hard Ramone fans as well as casual fans will enjoy it.
The interviews too often intrude on the music.
Some of the interviews seem to repeat stuff from 'The Turn of the Century'.
It shows what a great cover band the HC Peppers are. Dee Dee would be proud of their tattoos, and some credit is given to Dee Dee's song writing genius. We see Daniel Rey play, what tales of Dee Dee could he tell?
Johnny's guitar technique could have been much better explored and there really is no historical stuff about him, belying the title.
His demise is dealt with sensitively enough and we get to see and hear a bit from his wife Linda, though there are no interviews with Johnny himself in his twilight years.
Joan Jet's, Judy is a Punk , is relegated to the credits, whilst it's better than the Rollin's hollered one.
The guy from Rancid plays power chords.
Overall, better than some rockumentaries (recently tried to watch the appalling Sympathy for the Devil, and I'm a Stones fan!).
Not sure there is enough background stuff for the Ramones naive.
Like a Ramones concert, it makes you wish you'd been there though, so it's an effective production with a great ironic title; courtesy of Joey?
Three and a half maybe.
