Re: (TV) Wayne County first at CBGBs?
If you don't 'care who the hell Wayne County is' why you getting so worked
up about it?
Sorry but your argument sounds a bit childish to me--'you couldn't be both,
you were either one or the other'--christ we used to argue about whether we
were Sids or Johnnys--but that was in school!
As for the stage--most of the best gigs I've ever been to have been in clubs
with little or no stage.
Chill out a bit.
