Billy Rath, Steve Dior & Jerome Alexandre

Billy Rath (formerly of Johnny Thunders & the Heartbreakers) was in town for a few shows, and as far as I know it had been, what, around 25 years since the last time (Billy on the right here and on the left here and here). So on Wednesday I went with my auld china plate Marga to see the Broken Hearts – Billy, Steve Dior & Jerome Alexandre – at the Boston Arms in Tuffnell Park. I was very pleased to go, and the drinks are sort of reasonable at that place. Steve Dior's still got it of course but Billy doesn't look very well these days. The show wasn't particularly well-attended which was slightly depressing, although an earlier show at the 100 Club was packed to the rafters. Still, it was quite a treat to have a sing-song like that again.
