One regret I have is that the New York Dolls were a little before my time with a camera. Now those photos would have been really amazing! Still, David Johansen seemed to turn up a lot when I was taking pictures. I have photos of him performing at the Palladium as Buster Poindexter,
and showing up at parties (like this one at a party for a band called Tornader)
and visiting other artists at record signings (see my earlier post on Ian Dury).
Always seemed like a good guy, never gave me a hard time when I took his picture. Especially not at the Mermaid Parade in 2005 when he was King.
