Brickskeller finis

Farewell, Brickskeller of old.  I'll remember the good times.

I think I've finally come up with the right analogy, thanks in part to a Wall Street Journal article and the ensuing commentary and debate it prompted:

The Brickskeller was like Bob Dylan.

Legendary, but. . .    On a good night, terrific, as long as you made peace with the obvious flaws.  On a bad night, an embarrassment worthy of demanding a refund.  It/he changed the whole scene.  But........

More eulogies, by noted names in the industry, here and here.
