New York Dolls Coupled with Poison and Motly Crue | Strange Bedfellows To Be Sure

New York Dolls
The New York Dolls play what some people call "protopunk." Protopunk precedes punk rock. Bands like MC5, The Stooges, and Richard Hell are usually grouped into the Protopunk basket. Motley Crue and Poison will have the New York Dolls open on their current tour. The Dolls will perform at the Bradley Center on June 25.

I guess it's protpunk meets L.A. 1980's metal. I apologize to those who don't consider Motley Crue to be metal. I'm with you there. Still, this is an odd mix. Will the New York Dolls be appreciated by Motley Crue fans? If you do a bit of research, you will see that the New York Dolls were ten years ahead of those make up wearing metal bands from L.A. (See picture above)
