“Our first shows were at CBGB’s on August
16 and 17, 1974. It was just an old, dumpy little bar on the Bowery, as everyone
knows. Hilly Kristal and his wife ran the place, and they had nothing going on
there besides winos, so they started letting these new bands play there, like
Television and Patti Smith’s band. Dee Dee had heard about it, and so we decided
to give it a try. It was like a practice in front of ten people. We had gotten a
lot better by then, and we had more songs.
At that point, we were still dressed in
partial glitter because the Dolls were still the big thing in New York. I had
these silver lamé pants made of Mylar and these black spandex pants I’d wear
too. I was the only one with a real Perfecto leather jacket—what the Ramones
would later be identified with—which I had been wearing for seven years already.” (extract from Commando Johnny Ramone’s bio).
To be honest Sebastian Bach is my secret guilty crush.
Why so guilty? FWIW my friend used to work with Sebastian on the Jekyll & Hyde musical and has only nice things to say about him.
Let’s keep talking about forgotten bands?
This night, for example, these guys.
Speak for yourself, DOKKEN is far from gotten in my world.
