NO CONDITION IS PERMANENT [Episode #294 ~ 01-01-22]

Pictured: Johnny Thunders & The Heartbreakers.

There were people I liked, though, like Johnny Thunders and the Heartbreakers. I never minded seeing them individually or as a band. Dee Dee knew them better because he would do drugs with them, and they were all junkies. When you talk to junkies, it’s hard to have a conversation, because somehow their mind will always be on getting drugs. I’d see Thunders in the street or at a club, and we’d talk. The best conversation I ever had with him was shortly before he died in that New Orleans flophouse in 1991. I saw him at the Limelight in New York a few months before that, and we talked baseball. I always liked him and thought he was one of the most influential guitar players in rock and roll. I would have liked to have done a recording with him, maybe a cover song or something, because I always felt that he was sloppy and always had a band that could be a lot tighter. He would have been better playing with me. I could have tightened up one element of the sound.
