Publisher's Summary

There's No Bones in Ice Cream by Sylvain Sylvain is the inside story of glam heroes the New York Dolls - outrageous, defiant, sleaze kings, transgender posers, drug casualties, and victims, not just of their own excess but of an unsympathetic music industry that simply didn't know how to process them.

Sylvain, one of only two surviving members of the original New York Dolls, offers a fly-on-the-wall, sincere, and often hilarious account of the rise and fall of the Dolls, the group that flew so close to the sun that they exploded in a fireball that lit the touch paper under punk rock.

Though their brief, sensation-filled yet doomed career produced just two albums, the Dolls exerted an influence on rock that changed it forever. A cross between the Rolling Stones and the Sex Pistols, the Dolls became the link in the chain between them, offering a crash course in mischief, cross-dressing, and anarchy, but like unheralded prophets of biblical times they were cast aside until the world finally caught up.

"Other people turned the New York Dolls into legends. We just went along for the ride."

Fantastic Story and Tale of Rock N Roll History

Hard Rock and Glam Metal Owe a Debt to the Dolls. There are few acts that have had the impact on Rock N Roll the way the New York Dolls have. Sylvain’s book captures the essence of what it was like at ground zero with Johansson, Kane, Nolan, and Thunders.
