Chatterbox

"1-2-3-4" The beginning of any GREAT rock & roll song (ask a Ramones fan).

Chatterbox is a Dolls power tune that Johnny wrote and sings. The way he rips into the notes in the solo is pure attitude. Find the primal version of this on the Dolls second album " in TOO MUCH TOO SOON". Note that this song is sometimes called "Leave Me Alone" (on the So Alone album) or "Milk Me" (on Live At Maxs Kansas City album).
