Johnny Thunders Super 8 footage


Johnny Thunders was a pivotal rock’n’roll guitarist and singer, first with the New York Dolls, the proto-punk glam rockers of the early ’70s. and later, a hugely important figure on the New York punk scene, both with The Heartbreakers and as a solo artist. His influence on punk is massive and now, you can capture some bespoke footage thanks to eBay.

Up for grabs is some Super 8 sound film of Johnny Thunders appearing solo at legendary venue Max’s Kansas City, New York City, 1976.  Film made by Bruce Balboni and the picture is good, sound quality is OK and the film includes several songs and some off camera scenes outside Max’s. Essential for fans of music with a bit of cash behind them.
