Pat & Emily from Nightclubbing continue their series of posts over at East Village Local. This week they remember the Dead Boys at CBGB circa 1977.
The Dead Boys held a special status at CBGBs. They were managed by the club’s owner, Hilly Krystal, and played there more than any other band.
We loved the Dead Boys. They were the ultimate American punk band, the one that could go up against the Sex Pistols and prove what a NYC band could do.
Read the entire thing including a word from the Dead Boys' Jeff Magnum, and see more video, here.
