'Looking For Johnny - the legend of Johnny Thunders'
CHIP BAKER films in association with JUNGLE RECORDS presents a DANNY GARCIA FILM:
a documentary on the life of the late New York Dolls and Heartbreakers guitarist
Thunders was the legendary hard-living rock’n’roll guitarist who
inspired glam-metal, punk and the music scene in general.
‘Looking For Johnny’ is a 90-minute film that documents Thunders' career from his beginnings to his tragic death in 1991.
Johnny Thunders died in New Orleans on April 23rd 1991, he left behind a
mystery. Though MTV and international broadsheets reported the
guitarist’s demise, for many in the mainstream, Thunders was perceived
as an enigmatic outlaw. He was adored by a legion of devotees and cited
as an influence by at least three successive generations of musicians.
Thunders refused to play the corporate game and was both elevated and
damned for it.
‘Looking for Johnny’ is the creation of the documentary maker, Danny Garcia (‘The Rise & Fall of The Clash’).
The young Spanish filmmaker was seized by a question that wouldn’t let
go – "just who was Johnny Thunders?" He spent 18 months travelling
across the USA and Europe, filming interviews with fifty of the people
who were closest to Johnny, building a compelling narrative drawn from
first hand testimonies.
film examines Johnny Thunders’ career from the early 70's as a founding
member of the influential New York Dolls, the birth of the punk scene
with The Heartbreakers in both New York City and London, and later
incarnations including Gang War and The Oddballs. It also explores
Johnny’s unique musical style, his personal battle with drugs and
theories on the circumstances of his death in a New Orleans hotel in
1991 at age 38.
Interviewees include Sylvain Sylvain, Lenny Kaye, Walter Lure, Billy Rath, Bob Gruen, Terry Chimes, Alan Vega, Peter Perrett, Sami Yaffa, four of his managers: Marty Thau, Leee Black Childers, BP Fallon and Malcolm McLaren, and many others.
film includes forty songs with historic film of Johnny with live
performances from all periods, including unseen New York Dolls and
Heartbreakers footage and photos. Cult filmmakers Bob Gruen, Don Letts,
Patrick Grandperret, Rachael Amadeo and others contribute classic
archive footage, helping illustrate the charisma, chaos and heartbreak
inherent to the guitarist.
showings are booked for May and June 2014 across USA and Europe,
including New York City, London, Los Angeles, Chicago, Stockholm, New
Orleans, Dallas, Toronto, Boston, Washington DC, Gloucester MA, San
Francisco, Athens Greece tbc, Madrid, Barcelona and elsewhere, with more

Orders paid by any method outside the PayPal system will likely be subject to delays.
UK and particularly international postage charges continue to rise. The amount we charge is what we expect to pay plus approx 20-30p for packing materials.
