40 Classic Pictures of the New York Dolls in the 1970s

The New York Dolls are an American hard rock band formed in New York City in 1971. Along with the Velvet Underground and the Stooges, they were one of the first bands in the early punk rock scene. Although their original line-up fell apart quickly, the band's first two albums—New York Dolls (1973) and Too Much Too Soon (1974)—became among the most popular cult records in rock.

According to the Encyclopedia of Popular Music (1995), the New York Dolls predated the punk and glam metal movements, and were "one of the most influential rock bands of the last 20 years". They influenced rock groups such as the Sex Pistols, Kiss, the Ramones, Guns N' Roses, the Damned, and The Smiths. Here, below is a selection of 40 classic pictures of the band in the 1970s.

  1. Picture (8) is far too new to be in this set. Bank of China building was complete in 1990. IFC was complete in 2003.

    Otherwise, a good set of vintage.
