Los Angeles music venue the Roxy paid tribute to Kim Shattuck, devoting the club’s high visibility Sunset Strip marquee to the Muffs singer and songwriter.
A prominent figure in the alt-rock scene of the late ’80s and ’90s, Shattuck died on Oct. 2 at age 56 after a battle with ALS.
Bandmates, peers and fans posted tributes all over social media after Melanie Vammen, a bandmate in the Muffs and a more recently formed group, the Coolies, confirmed the news, writing, “My heart is forever broken.”
Shattuck’s husband, Kevin Sutherland, posted a wedding photo and wrote, “I am the man I am today because of her. She will live with all of us through her music, our shared memories and in her fierce creative spirit. I love you forever my Kimmy. Thank you for sharing your life…”
