I first listened to Johnny on the Dolls lps, I purchased both of these in 1979. In 1980, I picked up So Alone, LAMF and Max's KC, my life has not been the same since then.
I also saw Johnny live for the first time in 1980, Gangwar in New Haven. Not one of Johnny's better nights, the band got "lost" coming into New Haven and Johnny was totally out of it, he seemed to have problems playing guitar. Luckly I saw him many times after that, when he was on, they were the best rock and roll shows I ever saw.
