Hollywood Forever is one of the oldest cemeteries in Los Angeles and may seem like an odd tourist attraction but the cemetery regularly hosts community events, movie screenings, and even concerts. Gary Numan even recorded a live album in the cemetery during his 2013 Splinter World Tour.
As a music photographer and fan, I wanted to visit the cemetery to see the final resting spot of Johnny Ramone, Dee Dee Ramone and pay tribute to one of my favorite musicians Chris Cornell. The two are buried within steps from each other and hopefully, have formed some sort of all-star rock band in heaven.
The cemetery was an extremely peaceful place and a sort of calm washed over me as I walked around their burial plots and sat for a while in front of the pond near the famous grave sites.
