Now back in Chicago, Spider sparked up a new band endeavor, Tattooed Love Dragons. Spider landed a deal with FnA Records and continued his labor of love for music, slaving away in the grueling industry. Spider also had a strong drawing talent, which is displayed on the designs of his album art and band monikers. To his credit of bands and where you will find his original works, Gypsy Blue, The Fabulous Disasters, Bangkok Shock, and Tattooed Love Dragons. He also played guitar and sang lead vocals in a Motley Crue cover band Motley ll.
Spider became ill recently, diagnosed with stage 4 cancer in late November 2017. He departed to Heaven, January 24th, 2018. The cancer took over rapidly and unfortunately took Spider swiftly from this earth.
If you knew or played music with Spider, you know of his big heart, quiet strength, mild mannered disposition, and kindness. You knew his great love and it shone through, especially when he was around her. His passion for music and his passion for Patty emanated from him.
On Patty and Spider’s behalf, we began this page to help Patty with the culminated cost of the cancer treatment, hospital ER and ICU visits, and rehabilitation costs of healthcare which insurance does not cover, as well as the costs for sending Spider to his final resting place, where we know he’ll be with his musical idols, Bowie and Mercury. God has got to be in rock n roll Heaven right now… A true one of a kind. Our rock legend. We are proud to call you friend. You are missed, and will always be remembered with fondness and love.
