Features
To Hell and Back


There have been many books written about Johnny Thunders and the Heartbreakers; but only by people who weren't there. Walter Lure was – from the band's chaotic beginnings on New York's Lower East Side; through a now-legendary UK tour with the Sex Pistols and the Clash; and on to a yearlong stay in London – eyewitness and midwife to the birth of UK punk.

Now; he tells his story in this book; a thrilling ride through the clubs and dives of two continents; in the company of one of the most notorious junkies in rock 'n' roll history. Drawing from his own contemporary journals; Lure paints a vivid portrait of life in both cities; during perhaps the most crucial musical uprising of the past forty years – the music; the characters; the clothes; the fights; the drugs; the orgies; the lot.

Lure lays bare his own battle with drugs; and reflects upon his life after the band's split – rising to become a Wall Street fixture yet still finding time to make music.
