Kim Shattuck of The Muffs dies at age 56

Wow. This one hurts a lot. Saw them a ton of times. Apparently she'd been dealing with ALS the last two years.

If you never heard of them, you really missed out.

I had no idea she was battling ALS. Fucking bummer.

I was completely blindsided when I saw this on Facebook a few minutes ago. I had no idea she was fighting ALS either.

Veruca Salt just posted this on Facebook.

Kim Shattuck was a force of nature, a beautiful person, and a good friend. We cannot believe she has left us. Nina and I had the honor of singing our favorite Muffs songs with her in 2017. We filmed it for a video podcast that is now stuck in legal limbo, and we’re probably not supposed to show it to you, but fuck it. This is “Funny Face”. And we share it with all the love in our hearts.

Very sad. The Muffs were one of my favorite bands back in the early/mid 90s.

One thing jumped out at me from this: GO SEE YOUR FAVORITE BANDS LIVE!

While I never missed a local Muffs show, the day Kim died I had been waffling about going to a Stiff Little Fingers concert that night; it was mid-week, in a venue I hate, and I was light on cash having just paid my mortgage and it was still a few days away from payday. Kim's passing removed all doubt. I went to the show, and had a great time. Now, I'm not wishing anything bad on Jake and the boys, and I sure hope SLF returns again in a year or so, but if for some reason that was the last-ever SLF show in town, I can be happy knowing I was there.

I'm heartbroken. I've known Kim since she was in The Pandoras. She was so talented and a nice person. Very cool and funny.
