Johnny B. Goode

He was gone to New Orleans
to die there
it was three o'clock on the morning
end of his everywhere

He died at that time
solos were the best thing to trust
he died after midnight
with a wire around his neck

But at that time
it was all end
like the timewise of the cells
of rock n punk bells

It was all about numbers
how many shots
how many notes
how many sunsets
the time would stand

Go ask the solos
to understand
go to the grave
see the common brave

"Johnny Thunders, born John Anthony Genzale, Jr. (July 15, 1952 - April 23, 1991), was an Italian American rock and roll/protopunk guitarist, singer and songwriter.
Though he disapproved of the term "punk rock", Thunders is widely recognized as a seminal influence on the genre, particularly for his penetrating guitar sound.
He came to prominence in the early '70s as a member of the New York Dolls, and afterwards became a familiar figure in the New York punk scene, both with The Heartbreakers and as a solo artist.
Thunders struggled with drug and alcohol addiction and died under mysterious circumstances."
