Rene & Alvin - France, 2009

To some of us, the man on the right is as close to a god as one can get. Alvin Stilman's creation, coined in his own name, laid down the foundation for what was to become the central gathering place for the artists, musicians, poets and armchair revolutionaries of the Cass Corridor.
"Alvin's" was an institution that long survived its creator's ownership. Within the Corridor, the importance of this establishment cannot be overestimated. Every band that played in the Corridor played at one time or another at Alvins, or its later back-of-building-manifestation, "The Twilight Bar"
Alvin Stilman skipped out of Detroit in the 70's and migrated to the West Coast. He now spends his time between the West Coast and France (Tough life, guess someone's got to do it.) Thanks for everything, Alvin!
