The New York Dolls, who formed in 1971, only to burn brightly then break up in 1975, have been accused of inspiring everything from punk rock to hair - metal. "A lot of the mess people are listening to gets blamed on the Dolls, but we've always been just a stupid R&B based rock & roll band," says their self-professed idiot savant leader David Johansen.
In 2004, former New York Dolls fan club president and legendary rocker, Morrissey made the request that reunited his boyhood idols for the Meltdown Festival. He was curating the event at the Royal Festival Hall in London. The one-off date then turned into a full-fledged tour, "We were having so much fun, we decided to continue past the summer, and naturally, started writing some new songs," says the band. The New York Dolls consists of Johansen, Sylvain, guitarist Steve Conte, bass player Sami Yaffa, keyboard player Brian 'the Professor' Koonin, and drummer Brian 'Delancey' Delaney.
