Just off the news wire:

"Hilly Kristal, whose rock club CBGB served as the birthplace of the punk rock movement and a launching pad for bands like the Ramones, Blondie and the Talking Heads, has died after a battle with lung cancer, his son said Wednesday. He was 75".

The Life and Times of Hilly Kristal

I hope he opens a CBGB's in heaven. 3/4 of The Ramones and 3/5 of The New York Dolls would be a great opening night show!
