Nice. It's the only piece of rock history this city can claim except for maybe the Ozzy/Alamo incident.

Too bad Randy's is no longer a rock joint because it really was the south's answer to CBGB.

There's an interview with ex-Pistol John Lydon in the SA Current where he talks about this gig...

Quote:
John Lydon on the Sex Pistols, Randy's Ballroom, PiL, and Judge Judy - Music - San Antonio Current

...

"I remember [the SA show] being a wonderful gig and a brilliant relationship with an audience that had very little understanding of us," Lydon said. "I remember the only people that misbehaved and didn't understand how great that gig was was the British press who turned up just deliberately to write rubbish and create fiction."

Yet, on the internet you will find a video showing that, towards the end of the show, Sid Vicious hits someone in the audience with his bass. Lydon saw that. He was right there. But he only remembers Sid, his late buddy.

"Poor old Sid was a very weak character and had the tendency to over-perform," said Lydon.
Full article at the link.

Cheers! M2

Just because the band broke up does not make Johnny Rotten an ex-member of the Pistols. Could never be an ex-member unless it was to reform and then he left as it went on. The only ex-member is Sid Vicious.

Never heard of Raul's. Why was it famous?

I just read about Rauls on the "Music of Texas" wikipeda article.

Also good call, Randy's was not known to play punk, it was a kicker bar.

San Antonio later had the Bone Club but even that was before my time.

Randy's wasn't just a kicker bar, they've had all kinds of bands there.
I saw Slayer at Randy's in the late 80's.
