Remembering Arthur Kane

On This Date, July 13th, in 2004: Arthur “Killer” Kane, bassist for the New York Dolls died of leukemia in London, just 22 days after the band’s reunion concert at the Meltdown Festival. He was 55 years old. To anyone interested in Kane’s fascinating and bittersweet life post-Dolls, I enthusiastically recommend checking out the documentary entitled New York Doll, which is excellent, despite the fact that watching it will break your heart a million times. RIP Arthur.

  1. Ah, “Killer” Kane…although after seeing the film “New York Doll” he was hardly a “killer.” Another one gone way, way too soon.
