Late punk icon Joey Ramone will be posthumously honoured at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame this week (14May09).
The award is to make up for the fact his acceptance speech and presentation was omitted from the schedule when The Ramones were welcomed into the music mecca in 2002.
Ramone's brother Mickey Leigh and former bandmate Tommy Ramone will attend the ceremony in New York.
Joey Ramone, real name Jeffrey Ross Hyman, died in 2001.
