Janvier Posted January 28, 2012 Share Posted January 28, 2012 Independent record stores disappearing like snow from the French Alps! This time is Bleecker Bob's in Greenwich Village, closing down at the end of April -guess what they're opening a Starbucks, like there weren't enough already in the city "Bleecker Bob’s, which began as Village Oldies Records in 1968, on Bleecker Street, and moved to two other locations before ending up at No. 118, had many rock ’n’ roll moments. Jimmy Page, Led Zeppelin’s guitarist, tended the register there occasionally, as did Frank Zappa, according to employees, who said both musicians were friends with Bob Plotnick, the store’s owner." http://www.nytimes.c...e-out.html?_r=1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
