It is with great sadness that we write about the passing of our friend Dave Gregg, former guitarist of The Real McKenzies and the classic lineup of Vancouver punk legends D.O.A. Dave was a true gentleman and a truly unique character. We would like to extend our warmest embrace to his friends, family, and most of all, his longtime partner, Cathy. We will miss him dearly and our NYC shows will never be the same without his billowing, blazing white mane and long leather jacket, keeping watch over the whole affair. Dave Gregg , you will be missed.
