popular name: Jeff Porcaro
date_of_death: August 5, 1992
cause_of_death: Heart attack due to occlusive coronary artery disease caused by atherosclerosis resulting from excessive cocaine use
best_know_for: Jeff Porcaro was a founding member of the band Toto with his brother, Steve, and four others. The group’s hits included ″Hold the Line″ in 1977, ″Rosanna″ in 1982 and ″Africa″ in 1983. Interestingly enough, when Jeff was seventeen, he got his first professional gig playing in Sonny & Cher's touring band.
popular name: Darby Crash
date_of_death: December 7, 1980
cause_of_death: Suicide - intentional heroin overdose
best_know_for: Darby Crash was an American punk rock vocalist and songwriter who co-founded the seminal Los Angeles punk band the Germs. As the lead "singer" a typical show featuring Crash would consist of a wretched version of the Archies' "Sugar, Sugar" (complete with Crash pouring sugar over the audience), food fights, a revolving door of untalented musicians, and a lead singer so loaded on smack he would smear the audience with blood from self-mutilation. All of this and more was beautifully captured in Penelope Spheeris's landmark 1981 film The Decline and Fall of Western Civilization.
popular name: Sandy West
date_of_death: October 21, 2006
cause_of_death: Lung cancer
best_know_for: Sandy West's ferocious drumming fueled the influential all-female ’70s rock band the Runaways which she co-founded with Joan Jett. Along with band members Lita Ford, Cherie Currie and Jackie Fox, they had such hits as "Cherry Bomb", "Hollywood", "Queens of Noise" and a cover version of the Velvet Underground's "Rock & Roll". Never a major success in the United States, the Runaways became a sensation overseas, especially in Japan, thanks to the single "Cherry Bomb" as headliners with Cheap Trick and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers opening for them. The band never achieved mainstream success due to the mismanagement of pedophile / rapist (indisputable facts verified by countless victims) and manager of the Runaways Kim Fowley. After four short years the Runaways broke up and Sandy West continued sporadically in the music business but never achieved the level fame that Joan Jett and Lita Ford enjoyed post-Runaways.
