"I was a Long Island kid that graduated college in 1976 and moved to  Greenwich Village. Two years later, I was working The Mudd Club door.  Standing outside, staring at the crowd, it was "out there" versus "in  here" and I was on the inside. The Mudd Club was filled with the famous  and soon- to- be famous, along with an eclectic core of Mudd regulars  who gave the place its identity. Everyone from Jean-Michel Basquiat,  Jeff Koons, and Robert Rauschenberg to Johnny Rotten, The Hell's Angels,  and John Belushi: passing through, passing out, and some, passing on.  Marianne Faithful and Talking Heads, Frank Zappa, William Burroughs, and  even Kenneth Anger― just a few of the names that stepped on stage. No  Wave and Post- Punk artists, musicians, filmmakers, and writers living  in a nighttime world on the cusp of two decades. This book is a  cornucopia of memories and images, and how this famed wicked downtown  club attained the status of midtown and uptown. There was nothing else  like it― I met everyone, and the job quickly defined me. I thought I  could handle it, and for a while, I did. "―Richard Boch
