Recently, one of the late Grammy Award Winning artist’s paintings was featured in a question on America’s favorite quiz show Jeopardy. Dee Dee’s storied history with the legendary Hotel Chelsea, including his 2001 novel Chelsea Horror Hotel: A Novel, adds an unmistakably profound sense of immediacy to the proceedings.
