BRYN MERRICK R.I.P.
Vive Le Rock is much saddened to learn of the passing of former DAMNED bassist Bryn Merrick, following a long battle with cancer.
Bryn replaced Paul Gray in the band in 1983, joining from Cardiff punks VICTIMIZE and first appearing on the ‘Thanks For The Night’ single. He played with the band throughout their commercially successful MCA years, including the albums Phantasmagoria and Anything . He also participated in their psychedelic side project NAZ NOMAD & THE NIGHTMARES and their Give Daddy The Knife, Cindy album. In recent years, he played with RAMONES tribute band, THE SHAMONES.
Our thoughts are with his family, friends and fans.
