The Richard Hell Interview

Ian Fortnam,, 2000

RICHARD MEYERS, AKA Richard Hell, has more than made his mark on many areas of the media. Musically, he formed Television with Tom Verlaine, the Heartbreakers with Johnny Thunders and, in 1976, fronted Richard Hell & The Voidoids (whose Blank Generation magnum opus is about to be reissued). He's also collaborated with The Heads and Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore in the Dim Stars.
