And look! The Living with Legends blog has already given him a friendly welcome:
No doubt Marlene [Krauss] was impressed that Rockabilly Tilley was hired to transform the Paramount into a Hard Rock Hotel, as that is probably the sort of lame-ass fate she envisions for the Chelsea.
On the other hand, as I gather from recent comments on Trip Advisor, he wasn't able to accomplish that transition. Though a press release says the hotel was "rebranded" in 2007, guests still think they're at the Paramount, and complain that the rooms are old and dirty and poorly maintained. Sound familiar? I guess for this job, despite the "Help Wanted" sign on the front of the hotel, there just weren't that many applicants.
Uh, yeah. Best of luck to you, dude.
