A couple of weeks ago, I watched the steaming pile of movie that was CBGB, a comedy about Hilly Kristal, the owner of the legendary punk club. The movie wasn’t able to secure the rights to the songs by several of the bands, but featured portrayals of said bands in the movie anyway. Why bother?
Anyway, in my loophole where this is still about music, I was saddened to hear that Alan Rickman, who played Kristal in the movie had passed away after a battle with cancer.
He has played pivotal role in many of my favorite popcorn movies; from Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy to the entire Harry Potter franchise.
Fuck cancer! “By Grabthar’s Hammer, by the suns of Warvan, you shall be avenged”.
