Live Preview: Walter Lure
The former Heartbreaker thunders back into the UK.
He was a Heartbreaker with Johnny Thunders before jacking it in for Wall Street. Now he’s returned to the rock’n’roll fray.
Until recently you were a stockbroker in New York. What happened?
I retired in February. So instead of a career in finance and asset management, I’m now gigging around playing music and a bit of golf. Music has become more of a gig again now, like it used to be, rather than just playing one-off shows. In the last ten years I’ve gone through a revival, because before that I’d only really do shows in New York.
