Slideshow: New York Dolls in Dallas
The past: The New York Dolls, along with Iggy Pop and the Stooges and MC5, are credited as the godfathers of punk rock. The original line-up formed in 1971 and played its first show on Christmas Eve at a homeless shelter. The band broke up in 1975. In 2004, Morrissey organized a reunion of the three surviving band members, frontman David Johansen, guitarist Sylvain Sylvain and bassist Arthur Kane, who died that same year. In 2006, they reformed yet again and released a new album, One Day It Will Please Us To Remember Even This.
