    Johnny Thunders Paradiso Concert Poster (1981) Guitarist Johnny Thunders practically invented the punk rock guitar hero. His initial splash of fame came with the early 1970s glam rockin' New York Dolls, who have been cited as the direct inspiration for the Sex Pistols. Next came the Heartbreakers (not to be confused with Tom Petty's backing band), who were without a doubt the poster boys for "heroin chic". Before his addiction got the best of him, Johnny toured the world, including this early '80s appearance at the Paradiso, a converted church club in Amsterdam. The poster measures 24" x 17", and is printed in an unusual "split fountain" blue and black on white. VG++. Don't be "so alone" when you can have Johnny hanging around!
