Roxy Music

Celebs made the legendary nightclub famous; ordinary people made it one of the all-time greats

All good things must come to an end, but for the people involved, it seems almost like a dream. "I'm surprised that it's lasted this long," says Rauhofer. "It's sad to see another club go—this club with such a history. You know how it is in New York. Things come and go. Roxy, for what it was, lasted way longer than any other place. Once it's gone, people are going to value it way more."

"I've survived," says DiNino. "Most of the people I started with are in jail, deported, or out of business. I don't want to name names. I'm very sad. A club like the Roxy, it's so well-known, so legendary, it becomes a part of you. It's part of who you are. It's a sense of loss, a loss of self. It's almost like a death you grieve."
