Television's Richard Lloyd played guitar with Patti Smith and band (Lenny Kaye, Jay Dee Daugherty & Tony Shanahan) on stage for a few songs at CBGB's final show Sunday night, October 15, 2006. Richard's young son was up front in the over-packed audience. Tom Verlaine was home sleeping?

I heard the Dead Boys' Sonic Reducer twice this weekend. - first it was covered by the Dicators on Saturday and then again at this show by Patti Smith & band. Sonic Reducer, was originally a Rocket From the Tombs (RFTT) song. RFFT are a pre-Dead Boys band who never originally officially recorded an album sort-of. Richard Lloyd is a member of the reunited Rocket From the Tombs.
