A legend passed away this week. Our fearless, funky, and fabulous
leader…. Isaac Lee Hayes.
We are devastated. We are saddened. We are dabbling in nihilism.
In the wake of such an incredible loss, we have come to a few hard
realizations: Nothing is sacred. Time is short, heroes are finite.
BUT, brilliant music is unconditional.
So lets converge on the dance floor…wax enthusiastic…get sweaty
and get down. We’ll be back at our friends loft on Aug 16th, with our
gang of DJs, our thumping sound system, and our grab-bag of
unexpected treats. …Mortality may not fun, but it certainly gives
us a great reason to lose our shit.

Living with Legends published a copy of the 1983 program celebrating the 100 year anniversary of the Chelsea Hotel. “At a time when the current management is contemplating the destruction of the physical and cultural integrity of the Chelsea Hotel, the booklet is an instructive document…Surely they cannot fail to heed the words of Bess Myerson, Commissioner of the Department of Cultural Affairs:
‘There is, perhaps, no other hotel in the world that has been as important to the creative process as the Chelsea. For one hundred years the hotel has provided a safe haven to an impressive array of artists. . . .it now deserves to be recognized as a New York City treasure. A century of anything is a long time. A century of nurturing and supporting the creative process is a remarkable achievement. Bravo!'” [Read More]
