The Nails – 88 Lines About 44 Women

God I love this song!
This is actually a Jim Carroll song. Jim Carroll was one of the early New York punks. As you can see, he liked females just fine.
On the other hand though, he was somewhat bisexual, but I think that was just for money. Like many young men in New York who become addicted to heroin, he sold his body to men as a male prostitute for heroin money. You would be surprised at how many otherwise straight New York rock stars did such things back in those days (Dee Dee Ramone, anyone?).
I believe he eventually kicked. He was in with Patti Smith, Blondie, William Burroughs, the Ramones and the rest of those New York punk scene degenerates around the late 70’s and early 80’s in New York City. It was probably a great time to be alive in New York!
