In Memory of Stiv Bators

This is just a quick post. I was reading about Stiv Bators the other night and I learned that his 17th death anniversary was last month (June 2). So, I gotta pay tribute to this guy.

Sitv Bators first gained notoriety with the Dead Boys, teamed-up with Dave Tregunna of Sham 69 to form The Wanderers, then with Dee Dee Ramone and Johnny Thunders for the Whores of Babylon, and finally with Brian James (the Damned) for the Lords of the New Church. He also had a brief solo career before his untimely demise in 1990.

Here’s the Dead Boys’ compilation All This and More, which combined the gigs at CBGB's (8/22/77 and 3/11/78) with a San Francisco gig (11/1/77). Also included here are the three Lords of the New Church albums.

And these posts come from our good friend Gilberto von Mamerto. Thanks a lot Dude!
