Bob Gruen must be feeling pretty good about things these days. Not only has the wonderful book, Bob Gruen: Rock Seen, recently been published, but a select group of folks were treated to a theatrical showing of a recent Don Letts directed documentary on the man & his work tonight at City Cinemas East on 2nd Avenue & 12th Street.

Featured interviews include Iggy Pop, Debbie Harry, Alice Cooper, Yoko Ono, Sean Lennon, Billie Joe Armstrong, Tommy Ramone, Jesse Malin, Legs McNeil, and Lenny Kaye.
