Johnny Thunders died eleven years ago today. He's another one of those characters that tears me up. I love his whole deal -- the music, the pity-me look that girls love because they feel they need to rescue him, and he'll let them rescue him, the rock look that says f-it to everything. But of course he was a doper and I still have a hard time understanding how that happens to people. Actually, though, I understand that people's realities are so much different from my own that there's no way I'll understand their deals until I'm there myself... still it's foreign to me.
