Heartbroken.

I LOVE The Dolls and I was lucky enough to have a few chats with Sylvain over the years. He always had time for the punters and was a lovely guy. He'll be greatly missed.

Syl even made the BBC news headlines - something so many highly influential musicians rarely seemed to do in life.

Nice tribute online too: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-55674280

From http://www.tvsmith.com/forum/index.php?topic=6555.msg68208#msg68208 - 5/11/14:

"I went to see Sylvain Sylvain of the New York Dolls do his solo songs and stories show last night. He's quite the showman and it's well worth catching if you like the Dolls or are interested in the history of punk. I had a chat with him before the gig and thought that he was a lovely guy. He confirmed this when the guitarist from the support band asked if he could play "Jet Boy" with him and they played it right there in the corridor. They went on to jam on some Eddie Cochran - and Syl got him up for a few songs during the show.

Another nice touch was that he unplugged his guitar at the end and went round every person in the crowd to serenade them personally. Never seen that before and it was much appreciated.

Anyway, the reason I've stuck this here is that he clearly has several, ahem, "gentleman's fantasies" about Debbie Harry. Eventually, he asked if us if we wanted to hear about the time that he'd actually had sex with Blondie.



















"They were great - just a shame Debbie wasn't there!"  ;)"
