Drummer Teeter Dies
News of the drummer's death was confirmed in posts on both bands' websites, but no other information was available as WENN went to press.
The statement posted on the Twisted Sister site reads, "Twisted Sister is saddened to note the passing of drummer Richie Teeter. Richie was a member of The DICtators with Mark 'The Animal' Mendoza and later played drums for Twisted Sister from December 1980 until April 1981. Our thoughts and prayers are with Richie's family at this time."
The DICtators add, "Sad news to report on the passing of the former DICtators drummer. Rest in peace, brother."
Teeter joined The DICtators in 1976 and played on two of the punk group's albums before leaving in 1979. He went on to join Twisted Sister in 1980 as a replacement for Tony Petri, but Teeter bowed out in 1981.
