Neal Cassady and friends, outside Charles Plymell’s 1403 Gough Street house, San Francisco,  where Allen had met Peter 9 years earlier when Robert LaVigne lived there. According to Plymell, the other people in the photo were a “Hollywood filmmaker & cronies who came to Gough St. to visit.  That was [Neal’s] Plymouth he had driven to NYC and back to see Kerouac. I had to go to Motor Vehicle to license it with him when he got back because it was unregistered.”    c. Allen Ginsberg Estate.

““History Lesson – Part 2″ is their single greatest songwriting achievement and I’m not sure this is debatable. For all of the gigs and flyers in this band’s densely-packed 6-year career, this tune reflects the gigantic heart of the band. What did they stand for these Minutemen? Where did they come from? Where did they fit on the rock ‘n’ roll continuum? What will they mean in the future? If Joyce encapsulated the history of the English language in Ulysses, Watt encapsulated the history of punk rock in “History Lesson – Part 2.”” — I Stand for Language, I Speak for Truth, I Shout for History | The Adios Lounge
