"Looking for Johnny, the legend of Johnny Thunders"....


Göteborg, Bio Roy, June 11

I had the joy of seeing Johnny Thunders Live back in november 1984. Almost thirty years later and only 250 meters from Studentkåren, I saw this rockumentary by Danny Garcia yesterday. Thunders talent is there all the way....not to mention the drug downward spiral. Sad....that Thunders music is cut in small pieces and portions (for sure for economical reasons) because his music deserves so much more. Not easy to produce a good piece of work with such a small budget (credit to the director !). Anyway....Johnnys gitarr is its own, fast and furious, just like his short life.

Here is Johnny`s great song "You Can't Put Your Arms Around A Memory", performed in Madrid back in 1985.

And here you can read more about the film
