CHINESE ROCKS - 2011 to present, impersonating Johnny Thunders.
After the Deep Ones debacle I immersed myself in Thunders’ music, fashion, and stage presence.
I consider it a spiritual act more than a rock gig, helping to keep his songs heard and not forgotten. I feel especially connected, because the last gig Thunders ever played was in Okinawa on April 8th, 1991: my birthday. Highlights include opening for Heartbreaker bassist Billy Rath, Walter Lure’s Waldos, and Slaughter + the Dogs. We usually play around April 23, Thunders' deathdate, and July 15, his birthdate.
