Remembering Richie Teeter

The Real Canadian Music Blog

Former Twisted Sister and Dictators drummer, Richie Teeter passed away on April 10 at the age of 61.  He was battling esophageal cancer.  He was with Twisted Sister in the late 70’s and early 80’s.  He was with the Dictators prior to that, playing on their second album, “Manifest Destiny“.  This period for the Dictators was a very influential point in the punk scene and many consider this album a classic of the genre.
