The "New York Dolls" : Too Much Too Soon Paperback
by Antonia Nina
Too Much Too Soon is the definitive story of the most outrageous glam rock bands of them all - The New York Dolls.
The Dolls, peddling trans-gender posturing and incendiary rock 'n' roll, were dumped by the record business after making just two albums.
But their influence lived on when Malcolm McLaren injected the last of the Dolls' life blood into The Sex Pistols and changed pop forever.
From punk to grunge, practically every new sensation in the contemporary rock scene has been a delayed reaction to the New York Dolls.
Too Much Too Soon celebrates all the glorious sleaze and excess of the Dolls' brief auto-destruct career through interviews with the survivors, including band members, managers, roadies, groupies and hangers-on.
This new edition takes the story up to the Doll's reformation for Morrissey's Meltdown in 2004 and the tragic death of Arthur Kane shortly afterwards.
Illustrated and including a comprehensive discography.
