Quote of Note: Sylvain Sylvain
“At the big record companies, they’re all too busy looking for their next job instead of doing the job that they’re actually getting paid to do right now. All they look at is sales and, of course, hit records. But that is just so uninteresting to me.
If you go in that direction, I think you’re going to kill the whole essence of rock ‘n’ roll. The most honest thing that happens in the whole music business is when the kid goes into the store and says, `Here’s my money. Give me that record because I love it.’
That’s why I make music.”
What do you get when you pair up the New York Dolls’ Sylvain Sylvain with former Sex Pistol Glen Matlock for an unplugged concert? Acoustic anarchy, that’s what. And the seminal rockers are headed into WAMC-FM’s The Linda in Albany at 8pm on Friday (March 15). Tickets are $15 in advance; $18 at the door. NOTE: Tommy Ramone was originally slated to share the bill with Matlock, but he has cancelled his performance due to illness.
