I highly recommend the Hell auto/memoir "I Dreamed I Was A Very Clean Tramp".

I'll bet that's a good read.

Bad juju.

Played a gig in Baltimore with the Outsets; they were on their way down from NY, my band was in from DC and scheduled to open. Club owner, a notorious hothead, decided the Outsets would open the night instead.

Ivan was understandably livid -- but directed his anger at us, me in particular. After some scuffling in the [absolute shithole] dressing room, he suddenly smiled, said "no hard feelings. Hey, we need to move our van; where do you suggest we park?" I offered my insight.

Minutes later, my slow-to-kick-in spidey sense told me to check on my car - which had been trashed. Beaten to shit, broken windows, shit stolen. No Outsets van in sight -- turns out, they had good parking near the club.

I make no accusations -- I merely note bad juju.




Hell I liked -- until seeing his acting in Smithereens.

Okay; I still like him. . . .

Think you will find Richard Hell has been the subject of a before and after..so not quite unmentioned

That is a keen observation. Richard is also in another pic I posted, in which he is listening to some vinyl. This is about his band, The Voidoids.
