"Sometimes the most trivial conversations lead to inspiration. Such was the case with this piece. I was lucky enough to collaborate on a show in Southern California with the great clothing designer, John Varvatos. During the planning stages of the event, I was having a conversation with the brand ambassador about my knowledge of the brand and various locations I have personally visited. This brought us to the topic of the NYC Bowery store and the fact that it was in the former location of one of the most legendary live music venues in the world–CBGB.

After hanging up the phone, it struck me–I never paid homage to a legendary venue in any of my pieces. None was more worthy than CBGB.

Having launched thousands upon thousands of bands, deciding which artists should be featured in this piece was not easy. Ultimately, I decided to choose the three personalities that I felt best represented both the venue, the diversity of the sounds, and of course, my style. The Ramones, Blondie and Iggy Pop were the perfect fit for the vibe I was attempting to create. I’m sure there will be a debate (and I’m hoping there is) on who should have been included. The Police?  Beastie Boys? Patti Smith?..."
