Almost famous, yet again!!
October 15, 2013

My neighbor came up to me after a performance at the Ashokan Summer Hoot and said she just read about me in Will Hermes' book on the NYC music scene in the 70s: "Love Goes to Buildings On Fire." (I was Elly Greenberg back then.) Yes indeed, there I am on page 68 becuase Hilly Kristal had me as a regular performer at CBGB since he loved and wanted to promote Country, BlueGrass, and Blues. I was the first act at the new Bowery digs when he moved from 13th Street, and subsequently opened for many of the budding punksters such as Television. What a wild time it was....and those bathrooms....don't ask.
