Re: (TV) Re: Tom as a punk

I read that book on a whim 2 years ago. Another reminder that the 70s CBGBs 
scene was not glamorous for anyone, least of all the musicians living in squalor 
trying to make it big. At times, the book reminded me of the film "Smithereens".

Valentine's description of meeting Chris Stein and Debbie Harry in the mid/late 
90s (as the Blondie reunion is brewing) is also depressing.

Oh, sorry.  It was Gary Valentine and the book is 'New York Rock: My Life in
the Blank Generation'.
