Buster Poindexter

Following a string of solo pursuits and a respectable New York Dolls reunion run, David Johansen has pulled the tux out of mothballs to resume his activities as boisterous cocktail-lounge lizard Buster Poindexter. Johansen's intoxicating mixture of sly patter and R&B gutsiness takes the persona well beyond parody.
