Country, Bluegrass & Blues

Meant to get a post up on this yesterday, but Hilly Kristal owner of the legendary CBGB's died yesterday after a long battle with cancer. Rock Daily has some great stuff up on his life and legacy - head here and here.

CBGB's was the epicenter of an amazing music scene in the 1970s and you have to hand it to Kristal for insisting that bands play original music if they wanted to play the club. Thought Sonic Youth's "Do You Believe In Rapture" would be a fitting tribute to the man and his club....
