  1. Brian B. Nelsen Says:

    I had the great pleasure of seeing The Cramps live for A Date With Elvis tour and again in 95′. He had a way with the microphone I’ll never forget. my deepest condolences go out to his family,friends, and fans. Heaven or Hell just got a lot more entertaining!

  2. RLC Says:

    What a hero. I’d love to have met him. Then I’d have something interesting to write in my obituary! I was thinking about it all – what I’d leave behind – found a site the other day called farawayfish.com where you create a profile of yourself to go live after you die. Not as cool as Lux’s many tributes, but still something!

    A bit late for all this, instead of ruihsng to give them buckets of our cash, resolve these issues first along with the unfair charges test case going through the Courts for the last two years.If RBS et al had been put into liquidation the good bits saved as regional banks under new management, these political embarrassments would not have happened.Unless you are going to tear up the law of Contract, these bonuses will have to be paid, otherwise face years of litigation.
