When i died, as my life was flashing before my eyes on the last day of april in 1995, i saw that we were a moment in time. That we’re all moments in time. My dad, Steve (there were a few uncles, but no one loved me as much as him) chose not to go to the wake or funeral. Instead, he came the following morning and filled my stairway with wonderful white flowers and so much love. I don’t think anyone knows just how much he loved me. A couple of days later, he met with the doctor (we’ll use that word instead of “landlord”). They told him that they can give me a transfusion (that’s another word for “lease”) and that dad could take care of me for another five years. I watched as he looked at the walls, his fingers touching the stone, and i flooded his heart and mind with memories and promises. How odd it was to hear him say, “No. i don’t think so. i think it was enough.” Well, CBGB’s was very lucky and blessed, but sits in a different world now. Go there and look around. It doesn’t belong there anymore. The East Village and Lower East Side has become the “Lower-Upper-East Side”. That place died ten years ago anyway. It’s over. Trust me. I know dead. ~ Steve Trimboli, New York City 2005 (from “Scrap Bar Closing”)

CBGB Nostalgia Vol. 4 | Patti Smith

Posted in Shorts by unartignyc on 2009/08/04

October 15, 2006. Patti Smith put the final nail into CBGB’s coffin with a 3 hour long set. Instead of offensively priced drinks, one can now buy high end consumer level fashion items inside these legendary walls. Below are 33 minutes of the last beat of CB’s dying heart and a few thoughts on the “Home of Underground Rock” by Steve Trimboli, written in 2004.
