Johnny Ramone

Хилли Кристал (Hilly Kristal)On August 28th from complications from lung cancer at age 75 died the owner of CBGB Hilly Crystal. In 1969 he opened a bar “Hilly’s on the Bowery”, which in three years got a new name CBGB & OMFUG or “Country Bluegrass Blues and Other Music For Uplifting Gormandizers”. Without a share of doubt that club became a birthplace of punk. There were playing such bands as “Television”, “Ramones”, “Blondie”, “Talking Heard”, “The Heartbrakers” and many more.
On October 15th 2006 CBGB was closed.
Hilly Kristal planned literally to remove CBGB to Las Vegas, bringing from the old club as much as it possible.
