Hey! Ho! Pete Yorn!

According to AP, the Ramones are having a 30th-anniversary party in Hollywood. Joining the remaining members (CJ and Marky Ramone) onstage will be Eddie Vedder, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Pete Yorn, among others. Rob Zombie will act as "host." Proceeds from the concert will go to the Lymphoma Research Foundation and the Cedars Sinai Prostate Cancer Center.

I don't really have anything to add to this, but the story caught my eye, so I thought I'd mention it.

The Ramones are advanced without having ever proving (or advancing beyond) their initial "genius"

That is true for the most part, but I think their music did get pretty advanced at the later stages. From what I understand, they were using ghostwriters toward the end. And of course now they're having splashy Hollywood concerts with special guests.
