Staying in Cleveland to finish up the Stiv memorial. Many of the Dead Boys tunes were originally done by Rocket From the Tombs. Google the band and see some of the members went on to become Dead Boys & Pere Ubu. Check out a chipper Cheetah Chrome with the long hair on the right. Origins of his blistering guitar can be heard here!
