Dead of the cancer he'd been fighting for the past couple of years.

More details.

I guess this leaves David Johansen the last Doll standing ... at least from the original Dolls era, no?

Yep, sadly.

I knew him better from his ‘80 solo album and follow-up with the Teardrops.

The Dolls were a hair too early for me initially, but I soon caught up as I learned about the numerous influences my fave bands mentioned in interviews.

Sounds like his role in shaping their music was more significant than he maybe gets credit for.....

Both of those solo albums are excellent. I haven't heard Sleep Baby Doll or any of the Criminals' stuff. "Teenage News" (which was supposed to be a Dolls song) is a classic rock & roll tune.

So sad. I sincerely believe he was the glue that held the Dolls together...

I've only come across Teenage News since hearing the sad news. What a great tune.
