Biography

The Heartbreakers were a punk rock group formed in New York in May 1975 by Johnny Thunders (vocals/guitar) and Jerry Nolan (drums), who had just quit the New York Dolls, and Richard Hell (vocals/bass), who left Television the same week. After a few shows, they added Walter Lure (vocals/guitar), who had played with a group called the Demons. In 1976, Hell tried to persuade Nolan and Lure to kick Thunders out, but Nolan was too close with Johnny and kicked Hell out instead. He was replaced by Billy Rath, who, according to legend, was a gigolo. Hell went on to form Richard Hell and the Voidoids.

    Somebody called me on the phone
    They said, "Hey, is Dee Dee home?
    Do you wanna take a walk? You wanna go cop?
    You wanna go get some Chinese Rocks?
    I'm living on a Chinese Rock

    You've got to walk that walk
    You've got to talk that talk
    You've got to be that girl

    C'mon cut me so fast
