VINTAGE DOCUMENTARY ON THE CBGB’S SCENE!

"CBGB in 70's" on You Tube - Live shots of Blondie, The Dead Boys, and The Ramones are featured in this late 70's CBGB's documentary. Even though the commentator has a strange, infomercial voice and the speed is slightly off, the rare footage is intriguing enough to keep watching. The very articulate Ramones manager, Danny Fields describes them as "a great machine that went on time."-Amy Haben

FROM IGGY TO LENNON: BOB GRUEN’S LIFE WITH THE BAND!

Interview By Amy Haben - Funny thing is, when I was a teenager, I used to rip out these great color photos of The Sex Pistols from a large photo book in-between the shelves of the library and take them home to hang on my wall. Twenty years later, I'm sitting down with the creator of those shots. Bob is seriously one of the coolest guys I know.

THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF ARTURO VEGA!

By Legs McNeil - “Really Arturo, ABBA?” I shake my head in disbelief, as I enter the loft where the Swedish rock band is blaring from the record player next to the table that holds the entire Ramones silk screen operation—one long counter equipped with a wooden silk screen, cans of white acrylic paint, and stacks of black T-shirts. Arturo is busy making another pass with the squeegee over the latest model of the new Ramones logo, the one with the names of Johnny, Joey, Dee Dee, and Tommy encircling an American Eagle that’s clutching a baseball bat in one talon and an apple tree branch in the other. It will become their most famous design ever.
