I'm supposed to be awake alone for 3-4 hours and rule the posting duties.  lol

Anyway, RIP, I liked COC when they first came out.  Never saw them though.

I do sleep and miss out on plenty of obits I check for, only to see someone else has posted.  But that doesn't mean I don't intentionally try to beat the pack to the punch as often as I can. :D

Before Phil Fearon became Galaxy, he was in a band called Kandidate, a band who had a few minor hits and one top twenty in the late 1970s. A band I might add who don't appear to have a Wiki page! Anyhow, the drummer for that band was Lloyd Phillips, who has died according to this announcement from his brother Paul (member of Hi Tension):

Also an accomplished producer and songwriter. Was involved in mixing on Sinead O'Connor's The Lion And The Cobra.

Still in chemo "trying to control the cancer". Doesn't sound like a complete success so far.

Bob Fouts has died on April 28, 2020. The Indianapolis musician broke into underground music scene as the drummer of metallic hardcore upstarts Burn in Down in the late ’90s before following ex-bandmate Jason McCash and joining Indiana traditional doom metallers the Gates of Slumber.

How does someone who has been active and fairly prominent in the music industry for 46 years end up needing a GoFundMe for 10k?

Cause the music industry doesn't pay that much apart from touring, sadly. Just look at David Crosby's money woes...
