Great venue, great sound. Saw so many good shows here I still miss the place. Became a club for Ronnie Hawkins to play at every night, and is now the beautiful upstairs live music venue for the Hard Rock Café called Club 279. The Nick was owned by the same guys who owned the Hotel California. They always put a case of beer and a bottle of Jack in the dressing rooms of both venues. Most of the bars back then were good about taking care of the bands. We also had a manager that fought for us when it came to things like that. He once gave Godovitz and I t-shirts with his number on them. “Don’t talk to anyone if you fuck up, just tell them to call me. If you talk, you’ll just screw things up worse. You guys are a pain in the ass.” Love ya, Blue.
