The Cramps made their debut in 1976 at the legendary punk rock club CBGB’s in
New York. Gregory was known for his wild antics on stage and his distinctive
black hair with a lock of white hanging over his eye. “He was into feedback,”
friend Andrella Christopher said of Gregory’s musical style. “He loved making
the most obnoxious sound he could get out of that guitar.”
The band released two albums, Gravest Hits in 1979 and Songs the Lord Taught Us
in 1980. Although Gregory left the group in 1980, band members Lux Interior and
Poison Ivy continued to perform as The Cramps. Gregory also appeared with other
Cramps members as “punk thugs” in the 1978 film The Foreigner. After leaving
The Cramps, Gregory performed with the band Beast from 1980 to 1984, and with
The Dials from 1992 to 1995. He had recently formed a new band called Shiver,
Gregory is survived by a daughter, Tracy Ellis, and a sister, Pam Beckerleg,
both of Michigan.
RIP man... you were the coolest!
I read that he never picked up a guitar before he played with the CRAMPS!
he liked the sound ..........so.....he did his best to play what he
could! All the feedback was a front to hide his playing abilities! He
was one for the SEWER!
REST IN PEACE with all the other ROCK GODS!

everytime some asshole dies you guys start yapping about how much you LOVED
new rule: unless you mentioned loving somebody when they were alive on BT you
have to keep your mouth shut when they die.
have you never listened to the Beast singles. simpley horrible music. i'm
sorry when anybody dies but just because they made music that you liked does
not make them instant legend when they die. he is anything but a ROCK GOD.
Don't count on it. When you kick the bucket I don't think you'll be getting
any post mortem love letters from this group. It'll be more like, "What a
jerk. Glad he's gone."

New rule: Unless you mentioned disliking somebody when they were alive on BT,
you have to keep your mouth shut when the people who DID like him attempt to
pay their respects.

Never heard the Beast singles, not interested. No doubt they're just awful.
When I think of ROCK GODS, I usually reserve that title for people like Link
Wray, but if these folks say Bryan Gregory is a ROCK GOD, so be it. That fuzz
sound on "Human Fly" qualifies him in my book. I defy anyone to come up with a
sicker sounding fuzz, just a massive, continuous white noise in the key of the
the Fevers follow no one.
i'll take that as an insult.
you're usually so sweet sew. what's up?
does anyone care about Donny Denim? do you weeenies know who that is? if we
make an LP will any of you losers buy it? would we have to do something lame
like write featuring members of Stoopidcharger on it?
The Fevers made their debut in 1999 at the legendary gay punk rock club The
Purple Onion in San Francsico. Powerpops was known for his sexy antics on stage
and his ability to make people run screaming from the room. “He was into kinky
sex,” friend Bruce La Bruce said of Powerpops. “He loved making
love for hours upon hours.” The band released one EP in 1998. Powerpops also
appeared with other Fevers members as “gay punk sluts” in the 1998 film The
Assrimmers. Powerpops is survived by a no one, because he had no friends.
