JOHNNY THUNDERS - 'A White Christmas' Live @ The Peppermint Lounge, NYC 25/12/81 (*Re-Post*)
I've had a couple of requests to re-post this one, so here we go then..... According to Kris Needs in his book on The New York Dolls; Trash! “1981 saw Johnny at rock bottom, spending most of the year in New York doing drug money club gigs.” I dunno if this was one of those gigs, but artists get paid for their performance and Johnny did drugs, as for rock bottom, well Johnny certainly rocked at 2am in the morning in front of a small crowd at The Peppermint Lounge in New Yawk City on Dec 25th 1981, when he filled in for The Damned, who were due to play, but couldn't get visas. Enjoy!
Thanx go out to Chatterboxers Mrs Bobbins for the recording and Mindless for the info. The photo accompanying this re-post was lifted from fuckyeahjohnnythunders.tumblr
