In reply to: RIP 's message, "Today's (Thurs. Jan 16) Rocker chicks tribute pics -Lorna Doom of the GERMS, Kim Shattuck of the PIXIES, and Marie Fredriksson of ROXETTE. ..." on Thursday, January 16, 04:21:50am

Better known by her stage name Lorna Doom, was an American musician best known as the bass guitarist
for the punk rock band the Germs from 19761980 and again after they got back together from 20052009. ...

Lorna Doom
[ Teresa Marie Ryan ]
(January 4, 1958 January 16, 2019)

Early life
Doom grew up in Thousand Oaks, California, and attended Newbury Park High School,
where she met Belinda Carlisle, who would be the Germs' first drummer.


...Doom was a friend of The Germs' founders Darby Crash and Pat Smear and joined despite lack of musical ability, having answered a flyer looking for "two untalented girls" with Belinda Carlisle. She quit the band originally in 1980 after Crash fired Don Bolles, the band's drummer. After Crash's death, Doom moved from California to New York City where she lived until the late 1990s.

The Germs received a star on the Guitar Center RockWalk in 2008.

When the movie What We Do Is Secret came out
in 2007, Doom was played by Bijou Phillips.

Doom died of cancer on January 16, 2019, twelve days after her 61st birthday.

Bassist Kira Roessler (Black Flag and Dos)
spoke about Doom's contribution after her death. ...
...she was an under-rated musician and, in my mind, quite a presence on the instrument. The Germs were a
band that influenced far more people than ever heard them live, and I think Lornas contribution lives on in that way."

Guitarist Greg Hetson (Circle Jerks and Bad Religion) recalled seeing her
in the 1970s and says she proved "You can rock hard and you dont have to be a guy."
