With the Passing of Guiding Spirit Hilly Kristal, CBGB is Now Really Closed

The story of punk rock in America would have inevitably happened without CBGBs in New York, but it certainly wouldn't have been the same. Giving credit where credit is due: Punk Rock influenced Mainstream Music and the entire world. CBGB owner Hilly Kristal played a role in it all. CBGB proprietor Hilly Kristal, music supporter and keeper of the punk rock flame for three decades, dead this week at 75. This is a tribute..
