    Ex-RATT Guitarist ROBBIN CROSBY Passes Away At Age 41 - June 7, 2002

    Former RATT guitarist Robbin Crosby (full name: Robbinson Lance Crosby) passed away at 11:15 A.M. (PST) on Thursday, June 6th. He was 41 years old.

    Crosby reportedly died peacefully at home in Hollywood, California and was in no pain. The paramedics on the scene gave the preliminary cause of death as a heart attack.

    Details on a memorial service are pending.

    Ex-RATT frontman Stephen Pearcy has issued the following message via his web site www.topfuelrecords.com: "Robbin was a sweet soul, great talent and he will be dearly missed. Rest in peace. Stephen Pearcy."

    At the time of his death, Crosby had been suffering from full-blown AIDS after being diagnosed with the HIV virus back in 1994.

    In an interview with KNAC.com that was published in July of last year, Crosby blamed his condition on a heroin habit that he acquired early on in RATT's career.

    "[MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist] Nikki Sixx and I had gotten into the heroin thing together," Robbin stated at the time. "He was supposed to be the best man at my wedding and he didn't even come 'cause there was going to be people drinking and that was when he had just gone through his rehab thing. That really fried my ass."

    Here was a previous article I posted a couple of days ago:

    Ex-RATT Guitarist ROBBIN CROSBY: Is The End Near? - June 5, 2002

    Former RATT guitarist Robbin Crosby, who is suffering from full-blown AIDS after being infected with the HIV virus in 1994, appears to be going through some rough times again. In a brand new posting on the message board of his official message web site, ex-RATT bassist Juan Croucier writes that "I talked to Robbin and he is now living in an apartment in Hollywood. He says he's doing fine. He sends he's best wishes to everyone.

    "I'm gonna cut the shit here," the bassist added. "Robbin has problems and he didn't sound 'fine' to me. I'm not at liberty to really talk about what is going on, but at the same time, I'm also not going to BS people about what is going on."

    That's really too bad.

    Last time I saw this guy he was on "Geraldo" back in the mid-90's, doing a "Where Are They Now" type show. I remember how bad he looked then. Then, just a few years ago, I read he had full-blown AIDS. What a tragic loss.

    All these rock stars dying off like this. It ain't too good.

    RIP, Robbin.

    PS...btw, I do NOT like Pearcy and did anyone else think his statement was a bit pompous?? How non-personal can he be. [img]graemlins/irked.gif[/img]

    Tragic loss. For the record: it's Robin's Explorer that is heard on a couple of tracks on Van Halen 1. I believe "You Really Got Me" is one....

    I guess the end WAS near.

    rest in peace man.
    Gozer the Traveller will come in one of the pre-chosen forms. During the rectification of the Vuldronaii the Traveller came as a very large and moving Torb. Then of course in the third reconciliation of the last of the Meketrex supplicants they chose a new form for him, that of a Sloar. Many Shubs and Zuuls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of the Sloar that day I can tell you.

    No disrespect to Robbin, but wasn't it Chris Holmes' from WASP guitar? And, a Destroyer, not Explorer?

    R.I.P. Robbin

    From Ratt's site;
    Dear friends and lovers of the King:

    It has been about 10 hours since we all lost one of the
    most kind harted,the most compassionate, intelligent,
    talented, Strong, I mean fucking strong like I could
    never be, humans to ever have the pleasure and to be lucky
    enough to have in our lives!

    I've been sitting here in the company of the people that I love
    tonight and we've been watching some videos of robbin doing
    what he's always done best and thats ...kick ass live on stage!

    We made such a mark together as friends and as a band. and, the fact that i have that for the rest of my life is like having
    a reason for being. And I thank Robbin and the rest of my
    Ratt band mates for from the bottom of my heart.
    I would also like to tell my family how much I love them and that I also love my friends as well.

    I want everyone to know one thing here too.
    Never once did any of us here King complain about his
    situation...You have to understand something..... The man was put thru hell and never ...ever bitched about it. I know that I'm the biggest whinning pussy about things that aren't even a fraction of what he had to deal with and that is what makes him The King of the world!

    I only wish he could have been able to use it like a decade before. There are so many touching storys that we have that are what the essence of who Robbin was. If you guys only knew.

    Out of all of us guys in the band, Robbin was the most obliged
    to take care of the other guys family and friends at shows.
    I can only dream of being onstage with him and the rest of us together again because thats all it will ever be with him gone.

    As Myself and my sons and my girl spent time with him on
    Christmas eve, all I could do was think.....God....please,
    make this go away. And looking at my bro lying there and still
    having so much class and dignity, I really felt humbled.

    But yet, so goddammed bummed. What could I do? How can I get
    the king back where he belongs? I was always to fucking scared
    to face the truth.

    I Love Robbin so much. I will miss him, and I have missed him
    so much. Part of me, my family, and Rock n Roll left us today.

    The only peace i'm feeling right now is that he's out of the
    nightmare that has attacked him.

    Peace and health and happiness to us all!

    Thank you King!
