This Coming Sunday, Valentine's! Music Master Debbie Harry & David Johansen Along W/ Others Pay Tribute To Pioneer NY Dolls Guitarist Sylvain Sylvain After Recent Passing!

"A tribute event celebrating the life of late New York Dolls guitarist Sylvain Sylvain has been announced, with Blondie‘s Debbie Harry, Sonic Youth‘s Thurston Moore and more acts on the line-up.

Sylvain died in January from cancer, aged 69. He was a part of New York Dolls from 1971 until their second dissolution in 2012.

“While we grieve his loss, we know that he is finally at peace and out of pain. Please crank up his music, light a candle, say a prayer and let’s send this beautiful doll on his way,” read a statement confirming his death.

Presented by Rolling Live Studios and hosted at Bowery Electric in New York, the virtual concert will also feature “a mix of stories, performances and videos” from New York Dolls vocalist David Johansen, Henry Rollins, Blondie drummer Clem Burke, Sex Pistols’ Glen Matlock, The Lemon Twigs and many more.

Also on the line-up is Patti Smith Group’s Lenny Kaye, who wrote a tribute to Sylvain at the time of his death. “[Sylvain’s] role in the band was as lynchpin, keeping the revolving satellites of his bandmates in precision,” Kaye wrote.

“Though he tried valiantly to keep the band going, in the end the Dolls’ moral fable overwhelmed them, not before seeding an influence that would engender many rock generations yet to come.”" - NME.com
