Sylvain Sylvain and The New York Dolls were called many things—glam, proto-punk, hard rock—but are probably best understood as a "dirty rock & roll" band. Combining an aggressively androgynous style with a street-smart New York attitude and campy humor, the New York Dolls ushered in the era of CBGBs, heroin chic, loud guitars, and referential lyrics, which gave rise to Patti Smith, The Ramones, Television, and many more. Fans of the band range from Guns N' Roses to Morrissey, who organized the reformation of the band when he curated Meltdown festival in 2004. Sylvain Sylvain was there from the start, and this is his story. Taking in his early life in New York, the rise, fall, and rise-again of the New York Dolls, and all the misadventures between, There's No Bones in Ice Cream is the true story of one of rock's greatest, told in his own authentic voice.
