The news is slowly circulating about the passing of the legendary Sylvain Sylvain, an original member of the influential New York Dolls at age 69. The musician lost his battle with cancer and we are saddened by the loss. He joins the other members of the band who’ve left before him and leaves singer David Johansen as the last surviving member.
Growing up when I did I’d have to say that The Dolls were way ahead of my own music appreciation and I learned to enjoy what they brought to the table many years after their debut. They were surely influential and were the spark in the careers of bands like KISS who cited how much they learned from watching the band during their heyday. Sylvain’s death follows the news about the passing of bassist Tim Bogert. We send sincere condolences to his family, band mates and worldwide gathering of fans. Thanks for the music Syl, may you Rest In Peace.
