Dead Or Alive

link to image of video box

It's a raunchy Johnny Thunders appearing with the Heartbreakers on one of their many reunion gigs. What more could you want? The boys run through Pipeline, Chinese Rocks, You Can't Put Your Arms Around A Memory and all the other faves. Johnny jumps around, plays some hot guitar then lies down on stage and sings.

Thrown in for good measure is a short interview with Johnny and a tiny bit of footage taken from the film Punk Movie. The interview is none too revealing but at least Johnny stays awake through it all. The clips taken from Punk Movie and included in this video do add add some punch here but go out and rent Punk Movie.

The video is pro shot and edited so the sound and images are excellent. Well worth buying.

The European version of the video comes in PAL format with a different image on the cover link to image of video box.
