    I spent a lot of time at the Chelsea with the Doors in ’68-69 and my old friend Renee Richard still lives there. Please say hello for me if you see him…rory

    A wonderfull helterskelterconeyislandbigdipper trip down memory lane from the man that woke up folk jaded and slumbered deep Ireland to the world of rock….Thanks a million Beep and keepa Rockin’ baby. I was introduced to the Bards by my old friend Gregory Corso and just like Rory Flynn it became my home from home. How the devoloper has the balls to say he can improve on a thing that’s a oneoff beats me and i’m totally cheesed off that Robert de Niro is on board with him. Never thought that robert was that big a wanker…but…the mighty buck etc. etc. Keep up the good fight BP & Happy Week-end & bugger the begrudgers as the say in Durty Dublin.

    Great site. One correction though– I’m pretty certain Kerouac did not write On the Road at the Chelsea.

    @RJ, Correct, even though Beep says “maybe”. Jack wrote the initial draft in Lucian Carr’s apartment in NY, where Carr’s dog ate a sizeable chunk off the end of the scroll it was written on. He was constantly re-drafting it over about six years as opposed to the mythical three weeks it was supposed to have taken him.
