You think it will be hard to find an excuse for someone playing Debbie Harry to get naked?

The woman showed her snatch at half their shows.

saw blondie and iggy at the cleveland agora. debby wore a short dress w/ no underwear. they were awesome in every way, and her twat put it over the top.

/bowie played keyboards for iggy, version of china girl was one of my top ten rock moments.
//along with debby's twat, of course
/// read "please kill me" for a good understanding of the new york rock scene in the early and mid 70's. a GREAT read.

They wanted to use Chernobyl for the mens room scenes, but it wasn't toxic enough.

Hilly was a douche bag, plain and simple, and I'm not the only one who refuses to lionize him in death.

If vomit could be used as fuel, CB's would have been a world power.

the Roxy sounds like a good idea.....

considering great bands played there,

like Frank Zappa, late 70's Dire Straits, late 70's solo Peter Gabriel, etc.

Screw CBGB's, I want to see a film about the early days of thrash metal in the San Francisco Bay Area during the early 80s, when bands like Metallica, Slayer, and Exodus were just a bunch of 19-20 year old kids with no money but a passion for headbanging and loud music. That movie would have enough alcohol-fueled mayhem to put just about any other film to shame, and a kickass soundtrack too.

I'd rather just watch the documentary of the aftermath: Some Kind of Monster

I guess that's part of the appeal. Before Television, Blondie, and the Ramones started getting booked, that place was just another run-of-the-mill shiathole dive.

You're right though. You'd have figured they would have used some of the money they made from T-shirts to fix the place up a little.

===================

Kristal pled poverty until the day he died, and when he did die, they discovered he actually had $3.5million that he told nobody about, and his ex-wife Karen, who was the one who's name was on the liquor license, and did all the great things that were credited to Hilly, got screwed out of the money due her.

He held all kinds of "Save CBs" benefits even after he had secretly sold the place, and pocketed all the proceeds, because there wasn't a single thought in his mind of saving the place.
He didn't even like the music, he was into country, and bluegrass.

He pretty much invented the whole "pay to play" thing, as he rarely ever paid most acts, and they weren't officially on the bill, unless they sold X number of tickets.
The bands that did get paid, were rudely awakened at the end of the night when they found that all those drinks that were flowing freely were taken out of their pay.
Some bands even had to borrow money to pay the bar bill on their exorbitantly priced drinks.

"Bob, we loved playing here tonight. My brother's writing out an American Express travellers cheque to cover the extensive bar tab. I'd better check up, see how he's doing, see I have to sign it too. I usually sit in the car and write it out on the dash. Okay?"

Alan Rickman as Hilly Kristal, Rupert Grint as Cheetah Chrome, Malin Akerman as Deborah Harry; I take it there were no American actors available to play these parts? What's next - Matt Smith as David Byrne? Colin Firth as Richard Hell?

My CBGBCSB:
Back in the 80's, me and a bunch of my fellow West Point cadets went to NYC for the weekend. One of us was an avid punk rock fan and insisted on dragging us to "this awesome bar." It took us hours to just find the damn place, and when we got to this "CBGB" place, we were the quintessential fish out of water. In Dress Gray, close cut hair, and ingrained military bearing an posture, we looked nothing like the stapled, pinned, tattooed, spiked, dyed slam-dancing crowd. We immediately expected a fight, or at least to be thrown out. Instead, we were approached by lots of friendly (but freaky-looking) punkers who were genuinely cool about our being there. I wasn't into the music (more of a Dan Fogelberg fan), but the scene was something I am glad I did not miss a chance to experience. We stayed a few hours, had our picture taken with at least a dozen other patrons, fended off requests from people who wanted us to get high with them, had a couple of bizarre conversations, and then left with good will and an invitation to come back. About the only negative consequence was that a cute (at least with 20/20 beer goggles) punker girl convinced me to give her a medal from my uniform, and I had to buy a replacement.

It was a famous punk rock club in NYC that no longer exists.

These days it's a t-shirt brand for hipsters.

To give you a point of reference that you'll understand, try to picture radio Disney on drugs, without auto-tuners.

That's because they were real punks, not dumbfark posers.

The best times of my life happened at CBGBs.

I knew a kid in college who had to use forearm canes to walk because someone jumped off the roof of CBGB's while he was outside and fell on him. Kid still showed up to every punk show though.
