Such a shame. Personally, I only really remember Motörhead with Phil and Mikkey, but gave total respect for the original line up. I also read that that Mikkey Dee is now playing permantly with the Scorpions...that’s some change in style!

We’re all getting older....

Babymetal touring guitarist Mikio ‘Ko-Gami’ Fujioka has died at age 36.

Mikio Fujioka, the Japanese musician best known as the resident guitar virtuoso in Babymetal's Kami Band, has died. He was 36. According to a statement from Fujioka's wife posted on the late musician's Twitter account, the guitarist died on January 5th while recovering from injuries he sustained in a fall from an observation deck — where he'd been stargazing — on December 30th.

Babymetal confirmed his passing in a Twitter post today, January 9th. "The 'Little' Guitar Kami of Babymetal's Kami Band has passed away in the metal galaxies," the pop-metal group wrote. "We hope that he is now with his guitar master Allan Holdsworth and enjoying an epic guitar session with him."

Born in 1981, in Hyogo, Japan, Mikio began his career in music as a guitarist and songwriter for Young Guitar magazine in the Aughts, penning and recording songs to help his fellow axemen perfect their craft. In 2013, he enlisted as a member of Babymetal's Kami Band, where he became known as Ko-Gami, which translates to "The Small God" in Japanese (a playful nod to Mikio's 5'2" height). In addition to performing with Babymetal, Fujioka lectured at a Japanese music college and authored several guitar textbooks.

With a heavy heart, I move this discussion over here. Scott Hutchison has been confirmed dead. At 36. Personally, this is a hard one for me. His music is incredibly emotive and really shone some hope in dark days I've been through. Shit, this is sad.

Sorry, for real. It seems that this reaction is a thing with people who, how do I say..., don't strongly identify with "being" young anymore. I know I have and friends of mine have been struck with it. Partly because of what you said..... some music hits and helps us in impactful ways at dark times.

RIP Nick Knox, 60

https://www.altpress.com/news/cramps-dr ... knox-dies/

Drummer Nick Knox, one of the pillars of cool in the legendary psychobilly band the Cramps, passed away today (June 15). He was 60.

Knox (whose real name was Nicholas Stephanoff) joined the NYC-via Akron, Ohio, outfit in 1977 alongside larger-than-life frontman Lux Interior, tough-chick guitarist Poison Ivy and spooky guitarist Bryan Gregory. Anybody who saw this era of the band knew that Knox’s jet-black hair and the sunglasses (at dark) framing his stoic face was another key of cool in the pioneering psycho/goth/rockabilly outfit’s chain.

From the period of 1977-1991, Knox toured with the band and appeared on some of the Cramps’ most crucial recordings, Songs The Lord Taught Us, Psychedelic Jungle and A Date With Elvis. Prior to joining the Cramps, he was a member of the legendary Cleveland proto-punk outfit the Electric Eels. The Cramps appeared on the cover of AP 28 back in 1986.

In 1991, Knox left the Cramps and the music scene, returning to Garfield Heights, Ohio, and keeping an extremely low profile. In 2013, Knox appeared on Terminal, an album by Cheese Borger And The Cleveland Steamers, playing drums on three tracks. His last live performance was in 2003 with another notorious Cle-punk ensemble, the Pagans, at an event called “Ohio’s Punk Past,” curated and promoted by the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. (Pagans’ guitarist Mike Metoff is Knox’s cousin. Metoff also had a brief stint in the Cramps under the name Ike Knox.) Recently, Knox returned to the Cleveland music scene as a “senior adviser” to Archie And The Bunkers, the self-proclaimed “hi-fi organ punk” garage-rock duo. Knox would occasionally DJ at Bunkers shows alongside Miriam Linna, whom he replaced in the Cramps.

Listeners unfamiliar with the Cramps’ classic work should start with the crucial compilations Off The Bone and Bad Music For Bad People. But if you want to see the real punks, you punk, here’s the band in one of their finest hours, from the 1980 movie URGH!, A Music War, throwing down “Tear It Up.” (Watch your face on the flying cymbal.) Our condolences go out to Knox’s family, friends and legion of fans.

He died the same age as Lux. That leaves Poison Ivy as the last surviving original member of The Cramps.

R.I.P. Randy Rampage, 58

https://exclaim.ca/music/article/r_i_p_ ... gn=fbpwall

By Calum Slingerland
Published Aug 15, 2018

Randy Rampage — known best as a founding member of Canadian punk outfit D.O.A. and vocalist of thrash metal band Annihilator — has died. A Facebook post from the makers of Vancouver punk doc Bloodied But Unbowed confirmed Rampage's passing yesterday (August 14), though no cause of death has been revealed. He was 58.

Born Randall Desmond Archibald in 1960, Rampage co-founded D.O.A. in 1978, playing bass on the group's 1980 debut Something Better Change and 1981's sophomore LP Hardcore '81.

After being fired from D.O.A., Rampage joined Annihilator in 1987, lending his vocals to the thrash outfit's 1989 debut LP Alice in Hell. Rampage left the band shortly after, returning to the mic in 1999 to release Criteria for a Black Widow.

Rampage then rejoined D.O.A. for a second time in 2000, playing bass on the band's 2002 LP Win the Battle. He then left the group a second time after the album's release, only to return for his third stint with the group in 2006. Rampage played bass on the group's Bob Rock-produced 2008 LP Northern Avenger, and left the group again ahead of a 30th anniversary tour.

Rampage was also vocalist of Vancouver thrash outfit Stress Factor 9 and hard rock group Rampage.

I saw The Blues Brothers at the movie theater and there was a line around the building just to get in.
