The New York Dolls: Too Much Too Soon, 3rd Edition by Nina Antonia
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 6.7 MB
Overview: The Dolls, peddling trans-gender posturing and incendiary rock ‘n’ roll, were dumped by the record business after making just two albums. But their influence lived on when Malcolm McLaren injected the last of The Dolls’ life blood into the Sex Pistols and changed pop forever. From punk to grunge, practically every new sensation in contemporary rock has been a delayed reaction to The New York Dolls.
Too Much Too Soon celebrates all the glorious sleaze and excess of the Dolls’ brief auto-destruct career through interviews with the survivors, including band members, managers, roadies, groupies and hangers-on. The result is the ultimate saga of unrepentant rock ‘n’ roll and debauchery.This updated edition includes details of the band’s reunion for Morrissey’s Meltdown event in 2004, as well as the tragic death of Arthur Cane shortly afterwards.
