THE DICTATORS

Richie Teeter died on Tuesday April 10th at the age of 61 from esophageal cancer.

Teeter replaced original Dictators drummer Stu Boy King after the band broke up in 1975 and decided to give it another crack in early 76'. The lineup then secured a deal with Asylum Records and released their second album, Manifest Destiny, in 1977, followed by Bloodbrothers in 78 both on which Teeter played. According to Steve Van Zandt of the E- Street Band The Dictators were "The connective tissue between the eras of The MC5, The New York Dolls, The Stooges and the punk explosion of the mid to late 1970s."

Following his departure from The Dictators in 79' Teeter joined Twisted Sister around 80'-81', however did not play on any of their recorded material. Wesbite themusicsover.com reports that although he performed Dictators reunion shows there is not much known about his recent life.

 Here are the Dictators performing  "Science Gone Too Far!" at Winterland S.F.  Jul 30, 1977
