When Nur Khan confirmed Don Hills death to BlackBook, he told Steve Lewis, Im gonna figure out how to put the best motherfucking NYC rock n roll tribute show together for him. While we wait for that, the nightlife legends memorial service is this evening. According to details posted by Redden Funeral Home, it will be held at St. Patricks Cathedral at 263 Mulberry Street at 6:30 p.m. In the meantime, memories are still being shared online: Peter Davis of Paper recalled Hill as one of New York nightlife's most pioneering figures. Handsome Dick Manitoba told the Post weve lost a piece of an era. Singer Bebe Buell described Hills club to the Times as a perfect rock n roll smorgasbord, and former doorman Thomas Onorato told WNYC that its parties were game-changers. And Ramones manager Danny Fields told the Daily News he was the last of the great hosts of that era.
