Guitar Wolf's Billy dead of heart attack.

There's more information here http://www.goner-records.com/index/news ... wstuf.html, but this is very sad. Guitar Wolf are one of my favorite bands, and their stage energy was a beast with teeth sharper than most. Now I'm even more mad that I couldn't make it to any of their recent Midwestern tour stops.

From Narnack's site:

"It's with deep saddest and regret that we post this latest Guitar Wolf news. Last night Billy, aka Bass Wolf, passed away, he was only 38 yrs old. The band just returned from their US tour, and fortunately Billy did get to spend time with his wife and children before going into the hospital. He died in his sleep sometime during the night.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, Seiji and Toru."

God damn. What a fucking rip-off. I hate it when cool people die while dicks like Jerry Falwell keep getting second chances.

Time to bust out 'Jet Generation'.

That's really sad. One of the best shows I have ever seen was at the Gallery (a really shitty bar) in Normal, IL with Guitar Wolf and Nashville Pussy. A night to remember for sure. RIP Billy.

Wild Zero. I declare it to be totally awesome. Reviews only give you a taste of the super fun laser fireball happy spot amazing (http://www.allmovie.com/cg/avg.dll); It's available from Netflix.

Finally got to see Wild Zero, hence the revival of this topic.

First, it is awesome. Plenty of booze, guns, zombies, UFO's, Yakuza, etc. And double helpings of Guitar Wolf.

Second, it's cool as fuck - what other movie has a whiskey-drinking badass tell some guy to get it on with another guy (who's in love with him), because 'Love has no borders, nationalities, or genders!'. This film would give Anal Couter the hives.

Rent it, watch it, live it. ROCK AND ROLL!!!
