Not the Great American Rock and Roll Band

Ladies and gentlemen, Johnny Thunders & the Heartbreakers. Just because it’s great, because it’s Wednesday, because Johnny’s still dead, because Max’s is a faint memory, and because there’s a lightning storm sweeping across Manhattan. And it’s not the Grateful Dead. Comment away.

  1. “And it’s not the Grateful Dead.”


    Thanks for the jolt of energy on a muggy (though now sunny) day.

  2. This is the second time we have something in common. I agree w/you warts and all. I last saw ‘john’ in a no name nite club in hoboken with some gal he released something with. He whined the whole show yet I still felt lucky to see him in person before his fall. Sometimes I think this country grinds up originals like him.
