Johnny Thunders Birthday Countdown – Day Three


Today’s Thunders youtube clip stays with the acoustic album ‘Hurt Me’ and the track ‘Joey Joey’ (as listed on the album).

This is a clip of Johnny on an Irish TV show (I have no idea which one). The year is 1990 – the year before Johnny died. You can get a clear impression of the advanced leukemia that, by this time, was destroying him from the inside. You also get some typical Thunders slapstick – thinking compere Seamus called him a little creep(!), almost dropping his guitar and some typical Thunders back-chat too: “You guys are funny lookin’ y’know?!” Oh, and you get a rare Thunders performance too! Thanks youtube 🙂
