New York Dolls Video Shoot

 Just about a year ago I was invited to film a New York Dolls' video. Being a Dolls fan for the last 25 years, this was a really cool opportunity to meet, hang out with and be a part of New York Dolls' history. And the day was exactly as I would have expected it to be. David Johansen and Sylvain Sylvain were laid back and very friendly. The set up for the shoot took up the better part of the day while the actual shoot only lasted about an hour and a half...but in that hour and a half I must have swallowed my sword close to 30 times. By the last few I was really ready to call it quits. The hat that David wore in the video belonged to me. He liked it better than the hat that wardrobe brought for him. That's the one that I'm wearing. There was enough of his hair in my hat that I could have cloned him...if I had the technology. After the shoot David and Syl were nice enough to take some pictures. Check out the video for Fool For You Baby off of the New York Dolls album Dancing Backwards In High Heels here:       http://vimeo.com/20810274
