Countdown to Dead Boys Reunion at CBGB


Cheetah & Jimmy Zero, originally uploaded by Cool Auntie.

From Cheetah Chrome's website -photographer unknown - the two guitar heroes of the Dead Boys, Cheetah Chrome and Jimmy Zero today. Before I show you recent photos I took of Cheetah with his family (Anna and their lovely infant son, Rogan), I want to ask him if its OK with him.

I love these two guys and what they bring as a pair to the rock n roll. Cheetah plays a brutal rock and Jimmy's the pop master. Together, you had a unique thing in punk, and I'm so happy that we all get another chance to see the Dead Boys musicians performing as a band again.

Of course, it's not the same without Stiv, but don't we know he's pulling some strings from somewhere?

Stiv Bators Live

The Dead Boys play CBGB on August 26 and 27; Cheetah Chrome plays with his own band on the 28th. Go to CBGB's website for the entire benefit show lowdown.

Its a lot of great music you will not want to miss.
