You Can't Put Your Arms Around A Memory: Johnny Thunders

Barney Hoskyns, New Musical Express, June 1982

"There's a certain charisma about a guy that everybody thinks is about to drop dead. It's like when Daffy Duck blows up on stage and then you see him as an angel in heaven saying, 'Yeah folks, it's a great show, but you can only do it once!'" – Sylvain Sylvain
