Product description


"Entertaining and absorbing." --Library Journal

"An instant rock 'n' roll classic! Arthur 'Killer' Kane tells great stories about the seminal days of the New York Dolls, in an easy, breezy, sleazy style." --John Holmstrom, founding editor, PUNK Magazine

"The New York Dolls were America's best rock band, [but] within the looming spectre of Arthur Kane in hatchet-drag, there hid a deeply gentle man of all-encompassing goodness." --Morrissey

"The original bassist of the glam-punk rock pioneers chronicled their rise and glittery fall before his death in 2004. Fun and sad." --Maxim

"Kane has a loose, ragtag writing style. It's not Yeats, but he's got style and enthusiasm. A rock and roll child of the '60s. Very much New York Dolls." --antimusic.com

About the Author

Arthur "Killer" Kane was the bassist for the New York Dolls and the subject of the hit 2005 documentary New York Doll.
