"Richard is willing to sign anything people bring on the condition that they’ve bought a copy of TRAMP at the event."
Hell was significantly responsible for creating CBGB as punk ground zero; his Voidoids toured notoriously with the Clash, and Malcolm McLaren would credit Hell as inspiration for the Sex Pistols. There were kinetic nights in New York's club demi-monde, descent into drug addiction, and an ever-present yearning for redemption through poetry, music, and art.
Since retiring from music in 1984, Richard Hell has focused primarily on writing. He lives in New York.
