Howard, I just got home from a local movie premier: New York Doll

Given your life at the core of the music scene those years, I think you 
may enjoy it. Hope you are getting out these days.
It is playing in NYC at

It is a documentary on Arthur "Killer" Kane, the bassist for New York 
Dolls. The movie follows Kane from 2003 when the director meets Kane 
while attending a Mormon church service in Los Angeles, through the 
invitation to the New York Dolls to do a reunion appearance at 
Morrisey's 2004 Meltdown Festival in London Arthur rejoins the surviving 
members of the band and they do play in London.  Stranger than fiction. 
Astonishing ending.Quite moving; the audience tonight gave the movie a 
standing ovation. Don't leave until after the final credits roll; there 
is a fascinating surprise. The director was there at the premier, saw 
the standing ovation and said that had never happened before, even 
though the movie was a surprise smash hit at the Sundance Film Festival. 
It has a zero promotion budget.
