New York Dolls To Tour

The New York Dolls, still riding high on 2006's One Day It Will Please Us To Remember Even This, have announced dates for another North American run.

The trek kicks off February 12 at Rams Head Live in Baltimore and runs through mid-March.

Led by surviving original members David Johansen (vocals) and Sylvain Sylvain (guitars), the legendary, cross-dressing band - whose early '70s classic albums New York Dolls and Too Much Too Soon presaged the later explosion of punk and glam-metal - now features a lineup that came together in 2005, featuring guitarist Steve Conte (Company of Wolves), bassist Sami Yaffa (Hanoi Rocks), drummer Brian Delaney and keyboardist Brian Koonin.

"It won't be very long that we'll be together longer than the original band was," Johansen laughs.
