DOWNLOAD: The Products - Lets go to CBGB (MP3)

It was a media circus outside CBGB Sunday night (Oct 15, 2006). An ailing Hilly Kristal entered the club he owns around 7pm - not long before doors opened to the last show ever.

Ends up they held a press conference inside from around 7:20 - 8:00. The news media got to ask Patti Smith some questions and film some footage during soundcheck. Then they kicked all the press out before opening the doors to those waiting on line - some since 9am.

You may ask yourself, where did my landmark go to?

I've got a night club that's better than that....

Letting the doors get closed (after the money's gone)
