Punk Rock’s Secret, Semitic History

Punk rock’s most revered founders include a yeshiva alum named Tamás Erdélyi and a Bronx Jew known to his family as Richard Blum. No, they weren’t managers, producers or label honchos; Erdélyi and Blum are living legends of the mid-1970s punk rock scene, widely celebrated for their bands’ revolutionary three-chord masterpieces.
