Then you go downstairs to some tables and chairs

One of the guys who ran the Bottom Line nightclub in the East Village of Manhattan has died. Stanley Snadowsky. What a great venue that was. Well worth lining up on the sidewalk to get in, for just about any show they hosted.

The obits will all mention the famous Springsteen stand of August 1975. But there was another Springsteen date there, in April 1974. That's when we encountered him for the first time.

We remember two other Bottom Line shows -- comedian Robert Klein and songwriter Don McLean. Both were great. McLean broke a string in the middle of a song -- suspended the song, replaced the string, picked up where he left off. Klein kept us in stitches. God rest Stanley Snadowsky, and thanks.
