Re: (TV) Wayne County first at CBGBs?

    Sounds like this person's a heterophobe. Like anyone cares who the hell
Wayne County is and what he accomplished. Sure they were fun rock and roll,
but there was enough of that goin' on already with the New York Dolls who
did it before and obviously a whole lot better than W/Jayne County. Who
who played CBGB's first? If it's that imporant then we better find out which
"C"ountry, "B"lue"G"rass, and "B"lues bands played there before all the rock
bands got there. All I care about is Television's first appear at CBGB's.
 If the truth be told, Wayne County didn't last at CB's, he ended up
being a Max's act. You couldn't be both, you were either one or the other.
So even though WC may have been the first "Punk" band to play CBGB's, he
stay around long enough to help create the scene that would end up happening
there. He did it at "Max's" as his song well tells the tale. Television
responsibility only for revamping the club soundsystem and stage. There was
no stage until Television came along. Before that, you played at floor level
with the audience. Such pettiness. M T C
