PEARL JAM star Eddie Vedder has a permanent home at late pal Johnny Ramone's Los Angeles house - after the punk icon created a place for the rocker and his wife to stay before he died last year (04).

Vedder is thrilled with his friend's tribute and always makes a point of staying with Ramone's widow LINDA at the pool house they created for him.

He says, "He set it up so I could visit and stay there.

"I remember reading that Frank Sinatra did that for Sammy Davis Jr. So I felt proud to be Johnny's Sammy."
