Rockers We’ve Lost in 2012: Richard Teeter of The Dictators

Former Dictators drummer Richard Teeter passed away this April at age 61. Teeter joined the legendary NYC rockers just after the release of their classic 1975 debut album ‘The Dictators Go Girl Crazy.’ He would stay with the band for two more albums until their first break up in 1979. The Dictators have often been called the missing link between the late 60’s rebels like the Stooges and MC5 and the later punk era.

No other information has been made available, just a simple post on the Dictators website saying “Sad news to report on the passing of the former Dictators drummer. Rest in peace, brother. More to come …”
