Stiv Bators – Hit by Taxi

Dead Boys

Veteran New York punk rocker Stiv Bators met his end on June 3, 1990 when he struck by a taxi while crossing the street in Paris. Bators, best known for his stint playing with Dead Boys, was reportedly taken to a Paris hospital after the incident but left before receiving any treatment. The rocker claimed that he was fine, but then passed in his sleep later that evening.

Bators’ girlfriend later claimed that she spread some of his ashes across Jim Morrison’s Paris grave, but also saved some ashes to snort in an attempt to be closer to her late lover.
