A 61 anni scompare Lorna Doom (Teresa Ryan) la storica bassista dei Germs. A darne notizia il batterista Doom Bolles: “She left this mortal coil today around 1”. I due assieme a Darby Crash e Pat Smear rappresentano la classica line up (partita nel 1976 con un clamoroso via vai di batteristi almeno fino al 1978, quando entra la Doom c’è Belinda Carlisle poi nelle Go-Go’s) arrivata al capolinea dopo la tragica fine di Crash nel 1980. Un solo leggendario album – ‘(GI)’ – pubblicato nel 1979.
UPDATE > Una nota della famiglia conferma:
Teresa Ryan a/k/a Lorna Doom was always a woman of mystery. So much so, that even in her final days as she fought a tough, year-long battle with cancer, very few people even knew she was ill. She kept a very close knit social circle, and those who knew her and loved her always respected her desire for privacy. When she finally lost her struggle with cancer at 12:50 pm yesterday, Wednesday January 16th, it came as a shock to many, as she had chosen to not burden others with what she was going through.”
