The Chelsea Hotel is part of New York’s cultural fabric. It has been witness to murder, drug overdoses, suicide and scandal. In its rooms famous movies were conceived, hit songs written, and artworks created. This blistering book is a snapshot based on the diaries and notes of Joe Ambrose, written during his stay at the hotel. In it he meets Warhol superstar Gerard Malanga, sinister drug smuggler the Duchess, Chelsea Hotel proprietor Stanley Bard, and beat generation founding father Herbert Huncke. He visits, in pursuit of sex or drugs or rock’n’roll, the Andy Warhol Foundation, Coney Island, Harem and the Lower East Side. He has chance encounters with New York Dolls, Debbie Harry, Patti Smith, Phil Lynott and Richard Hell. This book also tells the real story of what happened to Sid & Nancy when their turbulent relationship imploded in the Chelsea Hotel.
