Johnny Thunders

Johnny Thunders was a member of the New York Dolls and therefore one of the most influential people in Punk Rock history, as well as one of the best dressed men - along with Nick Cave- in the music industry.

I really like this statement from The Cheap Date Guide to Style about him :" Johnny Thunders was a kid from Queens in Studio-54 era, anything-goes New York. From boy-scout shirts to Tibetan boots, '40s women's heels to fine tailoring. With a curled lip, he made the slightest detail significant, and magnificent. Mundanity didn't exist in his style, and pictures of him are still magical."

Me gusta mucho éste extracto de The Cheap Date Guide to Style sobre él: "Johnny Thunders era un chico de Queens en la era de Studio 54, y cualquier cosa que se llevase en New York. Desde camisas de cowboy pasando por botas tibetanas, tacones de mujer de los '40 o refinados trajes hechos a medida. Con su mirada de desprecio hacía del menor detalle algo significativo y magnífico. La mundanidad no existía en sus estilo y sus fotografías aún son mágicas."
