He has always been an angry dude.
I know he recently announced he was leaving his satellite radio gig to concentrate on his new band, Handsome Dick and the Soul Punk Kings. Don't know what that means for future Dictators shows.

As someone blissfully unaware of things New Yawk, is there a reason this sentence was in the article:

I read that as "so, of course, there's gonna be a huge fight over who gets to stay there." Cuz large, inexpensive east village apartments are as rare as unicorns.
Those old school NYC punkers who managed to stay in the city are mostly in the same apartments they've occupied for 30-40 years. Otherwise they couldn't afford the neighbordhood.

If I’m not mistaken, rent-controlled apartments have inspired a number of murders and Waking Ned Devine situations over the years.

I just read that Richard Hell still lives in the same east village apartment he's had since 1975.

Yep; Allen Ginsberg was his landlord for many years, too, funny enough. RH was the first example I thought of when you pointed that out the other day.
