In His Own Supportive Words: JOHNNY THUNDERS on ‘sickening’ pop stars
Johnny Thunders is available @ iTunes.
“I am very upset about what is going on in the Rock ‘n’ Roll industry. Please write this, OK? When I say Rock ‘n’ Roll, I’m thinking of pop stars. They make a lot of money but are not willing to help others. Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Bruce Springsteen, Madonna and many more… I wonder why they do not lend a hand? Well, Prince does. This is a fantastic thing. If I became rich, I would own a large house, several cars, guitars and a studio. That’s enough. Other than that, I would use my money to support many other people. For example, support a new young band. I hate the pop stars who don’t do such things. It is sickening.”
The quote comes from a 1986 Japenese interview.
