Band Name Origins:

  • Guitarist Sylvain Sylvain told it to us at a concert where he shared double billing with Glen Matlock of the Sex Pistols. He said that a place near where he and Johnny Thunders worked was a toy repair factory named "New York Dolls Hospital". That's what he said, "it's the fucking truth". Wikipedia also corroborates this. Submitted by: Planet Jet Boy Needs A Planet Jet Girl
