The Passing of a Legendary Place

Last year I had an opportunity to go to CBGB’s in New York City about a week before they were reported to be closing.   They managed to stay open for a while longer, but on Monday, it was announced that they are closing for good, but opening a place in Las Vegas.  I’m sure the Vegas place will be very cool, but it’ll always be the second generation of a great club that was the birthplace of a lot of great rock music.
