RIP STIV BATORS. RARE DEAD BOYS TELEVISION FOOTAGE.

Stiv Bators was from my hometown of Youngstown, Ohio.  When I first got into punk, I would get my hair cut by a guy who played and grew up with a pre-Rocket From The Tombs Stiv.  He would tell me some pretty wild stories.  Mr. Bators is somewhat of a Rust Belt folk hero.    While digging around, these two great clips from Dead Boys surfaced.  I especially love the old tour promo clip.
