I will always remember the NY Dolls and the impact that Sylvian Sylvain had on my life when I was only 13! That dark curly hair bopping up and down on stage will stay with me for the rest of my life. Love you.....

You made such a huge contribution to the New York Dolls and along with David kept the flag flying. The first album is still my favourite of all time. Rest in peace Sylvain and thank you for the memories.

He was a true pioneer of glam punk rock and was tremendously talented. I remember seeing him live in New York city, he was one of the best performers I've ever seen. His legacy and impact lives on in the musicians he influenced. He truly was groundbreaking.

I knew Sylvain in the early days of CBGBs in the mid-1970s, when I was with the group Mink DeVille. I remember him as an upbeat guy with a great sense of humor. I am sorry to hear of his passing. RIP.

I knew Sylvain back in the early days of CBGBs in the mid-1970s. I remember him as an upbeat guy with a great sense of humor. I ran into him a few times years later and it was always good to see him. I'm sorry to hear of his passing. RIP.
