WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Charlie Maultsby, who owned and operated the Mad Monk in Wilmington and Red Dogs in Wrightsville Beach, reportedly died Friday at the age of 69.
From 1983-1996, Maultsby owned the Mad Monk, a legendary music venue that host such musical acts as Hootie and the Blowfish, Marilyn Manson, Run DMC, Public Enemy and the Ramones.

Remembering the Old Mad Monk, a tribute page to the venue, has more than 4,000 members.
Maultsby also opened Wrightsville Beach mainstay Red Dogs in 1975 and owned it until 2016.
