LESTER BANGS 1948-1982

Lester Bangs—rock critic, author, part-time musician and full time personality—died on April 30th in his apartment in New York City. I can’t tell you how he died, since autopsies in this town take up to three months, and I can’t tell you why he died, since whatever did happen, it certainly was not by design.
