'70s punk survivor Alan Vega is 70

As if anyone needed reminding that punk's first flourish of youth was a long, long time ago, seminal synth-and-angst agitator Alan Vega turned 70 in June. Of course he's very lucky to have gotten that far, given the liking he and Suicide co-member Martin Rev's had of crowd-baiting in their heyday.

Anyway, there's some limited edition tribute vinyl rolling out to mark the Vega milepost (with Brooooce Springsteen contributing) and an interview freshly online at a Jewish publication here which reveals CBGB was "just one big Synagogue".
