The Age of Innocence #5
The Dead Boys, at their CBGB audition, 1976
"The Dead Boys had only been together a week. Before that we had a band called Frankenstein (in Cleveland), but we had broken up. We were just sitting around, mostly because we couldn't get a gig. Stiv kept saying, "Listen, in New York they're into what we're into. We're not weirdos there. We'd be normal there." -Cheetah Chrome
-taken from Please Kill Me: The Uncensored Oral History of Punk by Legs McNeil and Gillian McCain. If you don't have it already...what's your problem?
