Rest of the Summer & into Fall 1978

July 19th, 1978
Went to a club in New Brunswick, NJ called the Red Fox Inn. It was a local club that alot of NY bands played as well as local bands. As it turned out, everyone knew each other that I had met from the past 2 weeks so it was alot of fun to hang out with all of them.

August ??, 1978
Went into CBGB's . It was really dead so 57 let us in for free. This group called The Police were playing. They were so boring. No one was there. We left while they were still performing.

Sept 1st, 1978
Went to CBGB's. After when we were hanging outside, Sid Vicious and Nancy pulled up in a cab. They were on the other side of the street but pretty drunk. Nancy fell down crossing Bowery. It was so wild to see them. Also found out that Steven Tyler is marrying Cyrinda Foxe.

Sept 28th, 1978
Went to see Sid Vicious at Max's. He played with Authur Kane, Jerry Nolan, and Steve Dior. I was so afraid to see him. Did not know what he would do but I got up pretty close. Nancy was there and stood the entire time at the side of the stage. I wish I went to the other shows to see him.

Sept ??, 1978
Went to see Talking Heads at the pub at Trenton State College. They were really good, a different type of sound.

First Richard Hell & the Voidoids Show

July 22nd, 1978
Went the following Saturday to the Showplace again in Dover to see Richard Hell and the Voidoids. I went alone again since no one wanted to go. I met a bunch of girls again, and they lived kind of close to me to we exchanged numbers and plan to hang out. The show was really good and I was up close against the stage again.

First Dead Boys Show - Summer 1978

July 15th, 1978
I decided to venture to my first Punk Rock show in the US. I could not get anyone to go with me as my Bowie friends were pretty much turned off by punk rock so I decided to go alone. The Dead Boys and Steep Tips were playing at the Showplace in Dover NJ. All of the clubs advertised in the Aquarium Newspaper. I left pretty early since I had no idea where I was going. When I got there, there was only 1 other car in the parking lot with someone else in it. There were a few other empty cars also so I went into the club but during the day it was a Go Go bar and it was just a few old guys and some dancers on a stage. I got back into my car and the other car where the other 2 girl were, asked if I was there for the show. When I said yes, they invited me into their car. It was the one girl's birthday. We all hit it off really well. Turns out they do not live too far from me in NJ. When they told me where they were from, I told them about the experience with that guy that I bought the Iggy bootleg from and that he lived in the same town as them. As it turns out, it was one of the girl's boyfriend. We exchanged all of our band stories and who we had met. Turns out Jo had seen the Dead Boys lots of times and had alot of really good Stiv stories including back at the Chelsea Hotel. The other girl, Lori, told me she once had sex with Joey Ramone in a volkswagon outside of CBGB's. Not sure if that is true as Lori was a little insane. Lori stopped hanging out with us shortly after that night. She joined the military and over the years rumor has it, she has moved up pretty high in their ranks. The Steel Tips were good. The Dead Boys were amazing and they immediately became one of my new favorite bands. I hung out with Jo & Lori in the club and we got to sit up front although no one stayed in their seats at all. I exchanged phone numbers with Jo so we could hang out in NYC and go see bands. She told me about this band called The Blessed that was made up of really young kids that were fantastic. I can not wait to see them.
