How many people here listen to the magnificent NY dolls? Morrissey said in his latest interview that when he first heard them he "fell to the floor" and today is "still there"-- expressing his love for them in no better way. Some of his quotes mimic David Johansen's such as the one on people just being sexual without having to be homo-,bi-,hetero-, etc. Plus he wrote a long essay on them that was published as a book. I love the NY dolls and guess what-- Moz introduced them to me.
David Johansen was an amazing songwriter. He wrote the song "Frankenstein" which was later, according to Moz, to inspire "November Spawned...". And Johansen wrote "Trash" which he covered on the Kill Uncle tour:
"Trash go pick it up
don't throw your love away
Trash go pick it up
don't take these nights away
and please don't ask me if I love you
cause you don't know what I'm doing
all you know is Trash..
please don't ask me if I love you
cause I don't know if I do"
take a listen to the song "Lonely Planet Boy":
'Its hard, its so hard
and its a lonely planet joy
when with all the other boys
you're a lonely planet boy
I'm crying, I'm dying for your love"
