REST IN PEACE RON “RONTROSE” HEATHMAN.  Supersuckers was one of the reasons along with New Bomb Turks, Rocket From The Crypt and The Devil Dogs what made me want to put together Dead Furies. Supersuckers influence is pretty obvious in our music, especially on the “Rock City A Go Go” album but their spirit in everything we’ve recorded.

Rob’s guitar playing is in the DNA of my playing and he will be greatly missed. Took out a few old 7-inches to pay my respects. Godspeed, Rontrose!
