I LOVE this video. My Dad was good friends with Len Chandler. In fact he was the person who taught me my first chords on the guitar. He is such a gifted, talented artist / musician and a fantastic, warm, giving person.

Bob Dylan was also below age when he first played there. Mike signed his guardianship forms."

"I loved it when the Village was still like a small community, a town within Manhattan, and mostly "regulars" would hang out.....I always felt so welcome there... Bring back them old days!"
