New York Dolls: Photographs by Bob Gruen

Order from by clicking on the book above

Welcome to another edition of Mr. Media’s Kollege of Musical Knowledge. Today, I’ll test your familiarity with the roots of punk rock music with a very special guest, photographer Bob Gruen.

Bob just published a new collection of his classic photos, this time capturing the wild times of the original New York punk band, the New York Dolls, which once upon a time starred David Johansen, Johnny Thunders, Billy Murcia and Arthur Kane. The book – with its shocking pink cover – is titled, simply, New York Dolls: Photographs.

If you know anything about the Dolls, you’ll want this book on your coffee table. It’ll be a good bookend for other Gruen collections, including John Lennon: The New York Years and The Clash.
