His death must have been sporty.

And this is in the Sports Tab exactly why? Mr. Colby was also a right winger for the Islanders 1977-1983.

Did watching Olympic hockey kill him?

Proud to have played there. All those music-based clubs in the West Village are disappearing.

Nice. I played there a couple times as well; I had no idea it was actually some sort of famous venue.

I saw a ton of shows there while living in NY.  Thank you for so many enjoyable evenings.  RIP.

I knew of it by name only. I knew it was big in the '60's but when we played there, it was PACKED.

So he played for them from age 61 to age 66?

That seems plausible for the Islanders
