I will always remember CBGB for its super scary toilets (pictured above: the Men’s Room)! At least they were not as “Trainspotting-esque” as those at The Continental!

  1. Bummer- what a nice guy he was to us back in ’93, a snotty bunch of wide-eyed no ones how where just overwhelmed buy it all. A loss, to be sure…

  2. Wow…I thought he’d make it out to 100 at least! What a cool guy! Now PUNK is REALLY DEAD!
