Phil Lewis on the NY Dolls and Johnny Thunders


Recommended Posts

Johnny was, as an artist overall, about as unique as they come.  Quintessentially New York, unique as fuck, instantly recognisable sound, attitude by the barrel-load, lived and died it, Johnny was the genuine article right the way through his short life, the guy lived out an archetype and really, to a point, showed it up for all its ugliness and well as its style.  The Dolls as a band were fantastic as well.  Johnny is difficult to quantify really, a short post on an internet forum is inadequate.
