The New York City music venue which once hosted gigs by Bruce Springsteen, Miles Davis and Neil Young has been forced to close its doors for the last time - a month shy of its 30th anniversary.

Springsteen was among benefactors trying to keep THE BOTTOM LINE open, but owners of the club failed to come up with a new lease agreement with their landlord, New York University.

As a result, the club closed its doors for the last time on Thursday (22JAN04).
