David Johansen not able to sing???

Gotta love the Dolls, even if you like their lessor
cousins, Aerosmith.

Don't forget, this was in the 80's and Pete was a part
of the "new romantics" scene for a minute or two.

No, just saying "be yourself and enjoy it." I don't
think it had anything to do with rich or poor.

Speaking of VT, I was watching The Survivors last

with souls and personalities to match. Something we
all (men, I mean, although some women too) seek but
rarely find. And that I think is why it's's
