The most notorious personality crisis in the history of punk must have been that enacted by the New York Dolls' DAVID JOHANSEN, who in 1987 traded his house-frock for the greasy pompadour of his sophisticated alter-ego, Buster Poindexter. Disappointed by the lack of mass appeal of sleazy Dolls hits like "Trash," Johansen-as-Poindexter produced "Hot Hot Hot," which would prove to be a perennial wedding hit for middle Americans for the next 25 years.
Then there's the curious case of the Decendents' MILO AUKERMAN, who years after his work on that band's debut, Milo Goes to College, received his doctorate in biochemistry from the University of California and currently works for DuPont. Little known fact: the reason that the Decendents had to write such short songs is because Aukerman was often too busy studying to produce vocal tracks longer than 90 seconds.
