UPDATED x 2: Historic Hard Rock Cafe building in Dallas gets the axe
Designated a "most endangered historic place" in 2007, it turns out the danger was all too real. UPDATE: We hear from the developer and Scott Dorn sends a photo gallery.

DALLAS A group of onlookers that included a former member of the facility's wait staff turned out Saturday morning (Jan. 19) to watch as work crews using a mechanized excavator began tearing down the old Hard Rock Cafe in Uptown Dallas.
The building - which used to house the McKinney Avenue Baptist Church before it was converted into a popular local nightspot and performance venue - made Preservation Dallas' 2007 list of most endangered historic places. Developer Brett Landes bought the property last year after the Hard Rock gave up the ghost in March.
