I have just learned that Rock City Angels front man, Bobby Durango has passed away. Rock City Angels posted the following message on their Facebook page:
The Rock City Angels are no stranger to rumors. There is no shortage of outlandish tales attributed to the band that, while entertaining and bizarre, are just patently untrue. We wish we could tell you all that the most recent story circling around was just another fabrication … another rock n’ roll tall tale. We can’t. Yesterday we received the shocking news that our founder, singer and beloved brother Bobby Durango passed away.
Whether you knew Bobby in the flesh, only knew him online or just listened to his music, all of our lives are emptier today without him. And as for those rumors we talked about earlier, even we don’t know all of the details yet, so out of respect for his family it would be greatly appreciated if we could all refrain from posting any personal theories about the circumstances and instead celebrate the man’s life. He certainly left us an amazing soundtrack.

Rock City Angels is a great band that never really got their due. Bobby Durango will be greatly missed by all! Another rocker has left us way too soon! Our condolences go out to Bobby’s family and friends. Rest in peace Bobby!
Geffen Records signed the Rock City Angels to a massive 6.2 million dollar deal back in the mid 80’s. With so much money at their disposal, surely this band was headed for greatness right?! Where are they now?! Check out their video, “Deep Inside My Heart”. This is from their debut CD, “Young Man’s Blues”.
