Meeting U.S. Punk Rock royalty

I had the opportunity a few years ago to meet and hang out in the studio with Rock and Roll Legend, Sylvain Sylvain of the New York Dolls the last time he was in Hamilton.  Heck, I even sold him a TV yellow Tokai Les Paul Jr. which he ended up using on the session and the rest of his tour.  He was the coolest, most down to earth guy and it was an extraordinary pleasure to meet him. definitely, try to catch him on tour.  Without the Dolls, there really would never have been Punk rock.  As far as I am concerned, Syl and the Dolls should be inducted into the rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Speaking of rock and roll Legends, I also had the pleasure of catching Jayne County & the Electric Chairs in Hamilton.  Original guitarist, Eliot Michael was playing at these one-off type gigs and he was fantastic.  Eliot brought along his '59 Les Paul custom  and an old Marshall half stack and the sound was truly excellent.  It was a really great evening of Punk rock.  Eliot is great player but also a super nice guy!  He also owns Rumble Seat Music and is, in my opinion, one of the best Vintage Dealers in the world.
