History Lessons

Over at Bedford+Bowery, Marky Ramone—the last surviving Ramone—reminisces about the East Village as a member of various bands from the late 1960s on. He recalls the various, malleable music scenes present at the Fillmore East, the Palladium, Club 82, the Mudd Club, and, of course, CBGB's. The article is a wistful look back at a time long past. "And then of course times change," he says. "The evidence: CBGB's goes down because Hilly didn't want to pay the rent anymore and he had cancer. He had enough. He wanted to live out the rest of his life in peace. And that was it, the end of an era."[B+B; photo via Bowery Boogie/Curbed Photo Pool]
