I LOVE the New York Dolls! Did you guys see the documentary "New York Doll"? Killer Kane converted to Mormonism at the end there. Blew my mind.

That article just blew MY mind. Buster Poindexter is actually David Johanson?!?!





I honestly had no clue.

As a random anecdote, when my uncle was originally starting his career in writing, he got to interview David Johansen. At one point in the interview Johansen asked to be excused in order to take his medication. When Johansen didn't return, my uncle was confused as to why taking medicine was so time-consuming. My uncle's co-worker just looked at him and said "you don't really believe it was medicine, do you?" and the interview ended there.

They were all smacked out of their gourds in their hey dey (70's)

I'm a HUGE DOLLS fan...but drugs were a huge part of why they never got bigger than their cult status.

Johanasen did BUSTER as a sort of joke but also as a way to get himself back in the business...He also acted (He's the ghost cabbie in SCROOGED)

Dave Jo has been in a few shows/films, was in Freejack with Anthony Hopkins, Emilio Estevez and ironically Mick Jagger! I've seen him in Oz as well.

His first few solo records in the late 70's are great featuring Sylvain Sylvain, Ian Hunter, Mick Ronson and Elliot Murphy variously.

Let's not forget his stellar role as the Hitman hired to kill the demonic cat in TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE:THE MOVIE.
