Johnny Ramone's participation on Swing Cats: Special Tribute to Elvis album was a surprise for many people, because Johnny had been out of the music business and very quiet for years. These songs are also known as the 'Johnny Ramone final sessions.'
Johnny was a big Elvis Presley fan. He had a great collection of Elvis related items.
Johnny by the way was the bestman at Lisa Marie Presley's wedding to Nicolas Cage. They both were good friends to Johnny and Linda in the later part of Johnny's life. Also he was a good friend with Slim Jim.
