Dead Milkmen Bassist Dave Blood Dies

Sad news for Dead Milkmen fans, bassist Dave Blood committed suicide, Tuesday night (3/9/04). My best friend Beth sent me here.

The Dead Milkmen are best known for their song “Punk Rock Girl”, a kitschy ode to punk culture. Their quirky, self-conscious lyrics chronicling the punk life with social commentary and catchy riffs made them a cult favorite.

Dave’s sister, Kathy, lists their mother’s passing in January and Dave’s lack of worthwhile projects since the band’s breakup as contributing to his depression and subsequent suicide.

Those wishing to express grief and wish well to family and bandmembers can do so here.
