Paul Fox RIP
Paul Fox, guitarist with the Ruts died aged 56 on Sunday October 21st 2007. Paul was pivotal to one of the best punk bands of all time, certainly the best of the second wave of punk bands that hit the charts around 1979. His guitar sound, menacing, amplified and clear will live on – even so many years later the Ruts songs still sound fresh and urgent. Hit up Youtube for Babylon’s Burning or Something That I said or type in Rollins Ruts to see Paul Fox play at his farewell gig with Henry Rollins. The Guardian have an obituary on Paul here.
