A number of you wrote in with the sad news that author and club owner Brendan Mullen has passed away at the age of sixty
. The LA Times reported on his passing, noting
his opening of The Masque in Hollywood which went on to launch the careers of
, the Go-Go's, The Weirdos
, the Skulls, the Controllers and more.
He was equally well-known and respected for his books, including the classic, We Got the Neutron Bomb: The Untold Story of L.A. Punk
, 2002's Lexicon Devil: The Fast Times and Short Life of Darby Crash and the Germs
, the oral history of Jane's Addiction, Whores,
published in 2005, and wrote the 2007 Live at the Masque: Nightmare in Punk Alley.
Our deepest condolences to his friends and family.
