HANOI ROCKS Guitarist To Play With NEW YORK DOLLS?May 20, 2004
HANOI ROCKS guitarist Andy McCoy has reportedly been approached to fill in for late axeman Johnny Thunders at NEW YORK DOLLS' upcoming reunion shows in June.
Although former GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Izzy Stradlin originally agreed to fill the slot during NEW YORK DOLLS' upcoming concert at London's Meltdown Festival, he backed out of the deal (as exclusively reported here on May 7) when he learned that plans existed for the band to do additional dates — a prospect that would have required of Stradlin to learn more of the group's catalogue and to dedicate more of his time than was willing to set aside for the collaboration.
The reunited NEW YORK DOLLS, featuring McCoy on guitar, are expected to perform at the Meltdown and go on to play two or more additional concerts, including at least one show at a Swedish festival.
