CBGB’s Disheartening Ressurection?

Currently defunct legendary NYC music venue CBGB’s is set for a somewhat disheartening ressurection.  High fashion designer John Varvatos is said to be invading the once scrappy punk club and turning it into his new NYC boutique.

Varvatos may use the likeness of such rock royalty as Iggy Pop and Slash in his advertising campaigns, but does this license him the cred needed to take on the space minus adversity? 

It’s set to be an interesting battle that will surely end in Varvatos’s favor….because as we learned with the poetic closing of CB’s; money beats preservation.
