CBGB Founder, Hilly Kristal Dies at Age 75

"Hilly was a father to so many of us whacky punk rockers.
We'll all miss him very, very much. Thanks for everything Hilly.

A private memorial service is planned. A public memorial will be held
at a later date. Contributions in Hilly's honor may be made in his
name to the American Cancer Society or to the Hilly Kristal Foundation for
Musicians and Artists (168 Second Avenue, PMB 207, New York, NY 10003)."

Post stolen verbatim from Richard Bucchus' Bicycle Diaries.
