Last year I was 21...

The Stooges, with future Scarcity of Tanks member Mike Watt on bass, live in Helsinki last year. (That year, Iggy wasn't 22; he was 60.) When I met Watt,
it was in the front room bar at Folk City in NYC (where Bob Dylan, the guy who
wrote propaganda songs, used to play). Among other things, he was enthusing
about the music of Richard Hell, esp. his bass-playing. (When I first saw
D. Boon, he was sleeping on a little couch in the basement of Folk City.)
