January 29, 2017 Record of the Day

new-york-dolls-45new-york-dollsOne of the pioneers of Punk rock was the New York Dolls led by David Johansen. They heavily influenced groups like Kiss, the Ramones, and Guns N’ Roses. The New York Dolls’ big break came when Rod Stewart asked them to open for him at a concert in London. But not everyone was a fan. In 1973 the New York Dolls were voted best and worst group by Creem magazine. That same year Mercury records released the 45 “Trash.” With its picture sleeve a copy can get you $250.00 today.
