Man I really hate doing these. The world of punk rock has suffered a big loss today. Randy “Biscuit” Turner of the Big Boys has passed away. There is some information on it here.
The Big Boys were a huge influence on the punk rock scene in general throughout the years. They had one of the most unique sounds of any band before or since (despite the Red Hot Chili Peppers blatant stealing of their sound). Their motto was always “now go start your own band” and hundreds did! The world of punk rock, and music in general, has become a little more empty once again with this sad loss of someone who contributed so much to the history of punk rock. R.I.P Biscuit, I hope you are playing on the big stage in the sky, influencing a whole new group of people.
