November 6th 1972 New York Dolls cut short their definitive UK recording sessions after Billy Murcia dies of 'accidental suffocation' in London. Billy never regained concioutsness whilst a cup of black coffee was being poured down his throat as an attempt to bring him out of OD. Since that first death 2 more of his band mates have gone due to too much substance abuse including Jerry Nolan and guitar hero Johnny Thnders who made a career outta junk.
