The first photography collection devoted to the New York Dolls. With commentary collected by Legs McNeil, interviews with David Johansen and Sylvain Sylvain, an introduction by Lenny Kaye, and an afterword by Morrissey. "I like bands that are visually exciting- I believe in show business- and the Dolls always put on a good show. They were glamorous! Some people didn't get that; they thought they dressed like girls. But they were just guys dressing up- even using makeup- to be better-looking so they could get the girls' attention. The Dolls were having fun, and it was contagious... They were living a decadent life, and I joined right in, but always knew when to get the photos." Bob Gruen
