The lead singer of my hometown’s biggest punk/new wave/rockabilly band, Teenage Head (with apologies to my personal faves, The Forgotten Rebels), died on Oct 15.
Just learning about it now. (What touching comments, btw… “Jackson Square”, “The Key to Bala” — half my life just flashed before my eyes.)
The band also made national headlines for a June, 1980 concert at Toronto’s Ontario Place Forum when thousands of fans were denied access to the gig. It resulted in what’s known as the Riot at Ontario Place which led to the cancellation of all rock shows at the lakeside venue. There were several arrests and injuries but the attention made Frantic City reach gold status.
