Sunset Strip glam metal pioneer Lizzie Grey died this morning at a Las Vegas hospital from a rare brain disorder known as Lewy Body Disease.
Lizzie rose to Hollywood notoriety in the late 1970’s when he formed London with a young up-and-coming bassist named Nikki Sixx. When London ended Nikki went on to form a new band, Motley Crue, armed with a song co-written with Grey, “Public Enemy #1.”
On his Facebook, Nikki Sixx said: "we had a 1000 adventures together ranging from writing music, performing together, working odd jobs side by side and dreaming of all the possibilities life had to offer us young men. I will miss him and his passion for music and life.”
Grey remained on and off with London for the next decade, before forming yet another Hollywood staple glam band – Spiders and Snakes, who have collectively decided to call it quits rather than moving on without him.
Lizzie Grey was 60 years old.
He leaves behind a wife and two daughters.
