AceShowbiz - Rocker Nikki Sixx has paid tribute to former bandmate Lizzie Grey, following his death on Sunday (August 04).
Grey, real name Stephen Perry, passed away at a Las Vegas hospital following a battle with a rare brain disorder known as Lewy Body Disease. He was 60.
"With heavy heart I write that my friend and former bandmate Lizzie Grey passed away last night from Lewy Body Disease which he had since 2008," the Motley Crue bass player wrote online. "In the late 70's we had a 1000 adventures together ranging from writing music, performing together, working odd jobs side by side and dreaming of all the possibilities life had to offer us young men."
"Lizzie was a good man and leaves behind his wife Jennifer, 2 beautiful daughters and family. We talked quite a bit over the last year and he always told me his family was the most important thing to him. I will miss him and his passion for music and life. God speed and my condolences to anybody who was lucky enough to know him."
Sixx also urged his social media followers to visit www.LBDA.org "and help spread awareness" of the disease that killed his friend.
Grey, who co-wrote Motley Crue's hit "Public Enemy #1", co-founded the band London with Sixx in the late 1970s.
He was also a member of the bands Ultra Pop and Spiders & Snakes.
