Clayton Patterson: ‘CB’s Isn’t Coming Back’

Clayton Patterson joins other CBGB regulars, as well as Rob Sacher, in expressing doubts about the revival of the rock club. In The Villager, the photographer and videographer, who documented many a CB’s show, writes, “A venue without a scene attached to it is only a place where bands play and not the creative crucible where legends are forged.” And later: “The most that a new CBGB’s will be is a corporate venue. It will not be a scene, it will not be a hangout, it will be corporate.”
