John Varvatos, the fashion designer who has made a career of co-opting rock n' rollers from Alice Cooper to Chris Cornell and Iggy Pop, has taken over what used to be CBGBs. His store will open in the spring. Unrelatedly, the New York City Coroner Office officially pronounced Punk dead this morning at 11:03 am. He is survived by his younger brother Emo and his sister, Balkan-infused Pop. Memorial Drinks and canapés will be served at Whole Foods Bowery. [NYP]
