In the 1970s the New York Dolls took on another member, their roadie Peter Jordan, who often filled in on bass for Arthur Kane (allegedly when Kane's drinking became bad or, you know, when his girlfriend tried to cut off his thumb with a kitchen knife). While Jordan hasn't been taking part in their "comeback" shows over the past few years, he is still very much a part of New York. The former rockstar is now a doorman at a non-residential building in Midtown, near Grand Central. If you see him, show some respect...and ask him if he's working on a memoir (during his years with the Dolls he kept a diary, which was used as a reference for one book on the band). And did you know guitarist Sylvain Sylvain used to drive a cab?
