New York Dolls bassist ARTHUR KANE died on Tuesday (13JUL04) after battling
leukaemia. He was 55.
The punk rocker passed away in Los Angeles, following complications from
the cancer, only four weeks after performing at Morrissey's MELTDOWN FESTIVAL
in London on 16 June (04).
The Babylon group are scheduled to perform next month (AUG04) at LITTLE
STEVEN's INTERNATIONAL UNDERGROUND GARAGE FESTIVAL in New York, although it is
unknown if the gig will go ahead.
Kane is the fourth member of the pioneering band to pass away - guitarist
Johnny Thunders died of a drug overdose in 1991.
