New York Doll JERRY NOLAN Passed Away 30 Years Ago

14 January 2022

Drummer JERRY NOLAN joined the infamous gang NEW YORK DOLLS in 1972
after their first drummer Billy Murcia died after a failed attempt to revive him from
a drug overdose. Nolan himself left the Dolls in 1975 together with the late guitar
hero Johnny Thunders to form The Heartbreakers.

Nolan was treated for bacterial meningitis and bacterial pneumonia in late 1992.
He suffered a stroke, went into a coma, and never woke up again. He was only 45.
Rest in peace.
