When did rock n’ roll get boring? The NY Dolls had it all. They dressed like a Susanne Somers workout tape on crack, they figured out that heavy bangs and layered hair can work well on guys, managed to get women hot while wearing heels, and played fun tunes to let your hair down to. Substance without style may be good on your record player, but what about the live show? There needs to be a theatrical element to a band to carry the fantasy, to make them larger than life. We need to believe that punching a timecard and eating leftovers isn’t all there is….
