    If you ever saw someone crashing a car, truck or motorcycle in a movie or television show, chances are you were watching stuntman Bill Anagnos. He performed in hundreds of movies, tv shows and commercials. He also had roles in The Warriors, Can't Stop The Music, Beat Street and Malcolm X and was John Travolta's double in Saturday Night Fever.

    Yesterday, Germs bassist Lorna Doom died. Her bandmates included Darby Crash and Pat Smear. Today, Red Aunts bassist Debi Martini died. She called herself E.Z. Wider and, later, Debbi Dip. Her bandmates were Angel, Cougar and Sapphire. There must be a law that forbids punk-rock singers from using their real names. The Red Aunts formed in 1991 in Long Beach. They released five albums and six singles before breaking up in 1998.
