This week's rock and roll post coincides with the closing of Manhattan's legendary music club, CBGB. Whether you were a regular there, or just read about it in the liner notes to Ramones Mania (like me), you know what this place means to many rock and roll fans.
You can read on for CBs memories as chronicled by Paul Collins for Slate and Jim Farber of the NY Daily News, but we prefer to keep on rockin'. Enjoy.

Dinosaur Jr. - "Freak Scene"
