Athens: All Rock, No Lobsters

B-52's Cindy Wilson and Keith Strickland reminisce about their band and Athens, Georgia:

"It isn't like other Southern towns; it isn't now, and it wasn't then," says Strickland. He cuts a much different figure than the partying townie he was in the late '70s, roaming the streets in wild thrift-shop getups. "The university draws people here, and it's full of outrageous characters and all this creative energy. There were always eccentrics in Athens, but we took it out onto the streets."
