CBGB Founder Passes Away

CBGB was more than a venue, it was more than the bands that played there and the fans who saw them. It was an institution and the birthplace of Punk Rock. The irony of the little club created to host various Country Bluegrass and Blues acts becoming a focal point for art rock and punkers adds to the legend and mystique of the home to Patti Smith, Television, The Ramones, Talking Heads, and NY Dolls. Later the likes of Bad Brains and Guns N' Roses would make their mark on the stage.

Today the founder passed away and I felt I'd pay tribute with these:

Warning Sign - Talking Heads

Judy Is A Punk - The Ramones

Crazy - Guns N' Roses

Bad Brains

Longview - Green Day
