From Danny Garcia (Sad Vacation: The Last Days of Sid and Nancy) comes a feature-length documentary on the dangerous life of the late New York Dolls and Heartbreakers guitarist, Johnny Thunders.

Thunders was the legendary hard-living guitarist who inspired glam-metal, punk and the music scene in general. ‘Looking For Johnny’ is a 90-minute film that documents Thunders’ career from his beginnings to his tragic death in 1991. The film examines his career as a member of the New York Dolls, the punk scene with The Heartbreakers in New York City and London and much more.

“Sad, glorious, and invigorating, this a fine, fine picture for old-school East Coast Musos and anyone else who needs to discover the costs and rewards of rock and roll. Highly Recommended.” – DVD Talk

The extensive cast includes: Rachel Amodeo, Nina Antonia, Nite Bob, Leee Black Childers, Lenny Kaye, Phyllis Stein, Sylvain Sylvain, Walter Lure and a host of others from the scene.
