This day in HISTOROCK !!
In 1990, American punk rock singer Stiv Bators of the Dead Boys and The Lords of the New Church , died after being hit by a taxi in Paris, France . Bators had been out drinking when he was hit by a taxi while crossing the road . He was taken to hospital but after waiting several hours and thinking he was ok , he left before seeing a doctor . He died in his sleep as the result of a concussion !! Bators who was a fan of rock legend Jim Morrison, had earlier requested that his ashes be spread over Morrison's Paris grave and that his girlfriend carried out his wish !! In the film Polyester (starring Bators) with John Waters talking about Bators' death, Waters said that Bators Parisian girlfriend Caroline confessed to him years later that she snorted a portion of Stiv's ashes to be closer to him !! The Keith Richards syndrome ;-)
Keep on ROCKIN !!
