Jerry Nolan
Birth: May 7, 1946
Death: Jan. 14, 1992

Musician. Born in Brooklyn, New York, he was best remembered for being the original drummer of the band "The New York Dolls". He began playing the drums in the 1960s and in 1972, he hooked up with guitarist Syl Sylvain and Johnny Thunders, forming the "The New York Dolls". The group was invited to open a series of shows for "The Faces" in England, toward the end of 1972 and when they returned to the U.S. were signed on with Mercury Records. Together they released two albums "The New York Dolls" (1973), "Too Much Too Soon" (1974) and although neither album sold particularly well, both have become certified rock classics over the years. In 1975, Nolan and Thunders left the group, formed the band "Johnny Thunders and the Heartbreakers" and released the album "L.A.M.F." (1977), which has since become a punk music classic. In the following years, "The Heartbreakers" performed on tours, plus released the albums "Live at Max's Kansas City" (1979) and "Live at the Lyceum Ballroom" (1984). Nolan was also a part of a series of bands projects, including backing singer Sid Vicious and as a member of the group "The London Cowboys", which released the album "On Stage" (1985). He died at 45 in New York City, from bacterial pneumonia, which led to a fatal stroke. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
