RIP Hilly Kristal
We have heard the sad news that CBGB founder, Hilly Kristal has passed on. Hilly was diagnosed with cancer last year. He has been quiet, in media terms, since the club closed, but had discussed moving CBGB and some of its iconic fixtures to Las Vegas.
Goodbye Hilly. Thanks for all the good times. Kick Stiv in the ass when you see him.
