Dennis Hopper and Terry Southern, Chelsea Hotel
1981 BBC documentary on the Chelsea Hotel and its legendary inhabitants. This is good stuff. Includes footage of Quentin Crisp, Nico (backed up on guitar by my old friend Joe Bidewell), Warhol, Burroughs, Viva, Jobriath (2 years before he died of AIDS), Chelsea manager Stanley Bard and more.
I used to sit in the lobby of the Chelsea Hotel just to soak up the vibes. Here’s your chance to do the same. Enjoy.
