'Chatterbox' New York Dolls

Johnny Thunders was a great stylist - this outing with the Dolls shows him at his best performing this song which he played throughout his career, but this captures him at his peak. Heroin was the great downfall of JT but that shouldn't spoil our enjoyment of his legacy. The solo stuff post Dolls is patchy but there are some gems in there - particularly with the Heartbreakers. Sue and I wrote a song about him called 'Little Johnny Guitar' which we'll try and make available soon.
