    David Johansen, third from left. Rock god. Also recorded some excellent folk and blues as leader of The Harry Smiths.

    I still listen to and love the NY Dolls. RIP Johnny Thunders.

      so many of those musicians got screwed due to poor management. Even today, it’s damn near impossible to make money in the recording industry, which is why so many of them keep touring.

    Yeah, the article references Johansen’s “Buster” persona, during which time I imagine he was more widely known and commercially successful. I have only “Buster’s Happy Hour” from that period.

    Insurance Journal has a photo and reference to David Johansen and the New York Dolls. A comment mentions Johnny Thunders. When I go home tonite, I expect that CNN will report that Hell has frozen over. Thank you for brightening my day!
