Founder of CBGB has died.

The great Hilly Kristal has passed away!  :(

If it wasn't for him and his willing to let unique bands like Television and the Ramones play on a stage my musical world would be vastly different.

It is always fun to ask a kid wearing a CBGB t-shirt what CBGB stands for and see the blank look on their face.

There is a live The Jesus Lizard album called Show that is from CBGB's.  It sounds better than all their studio albums to me.
