Heller Says Goodbye to CBGB’s Hilly Kristal

Hilly Kristal, founder of the recently-shuttered CBGB, died this week, and the “rock midwife” and “original to the end” is being remembered everywhere from the Village Voice to NPR.

But we like Steven Heller‘s memory best. Heller designed a newsletter for Kristal’s first tavern called “Hilly’s Gazette” and tells a story about the “warm, wonderful man” behind the bar. Let’s not forget that Kristal was also the man behind a worldwide graphic phenomenon, the CBGB shirt you see to your right.
