“Many of you have reached me about my old friend and my one time singer Frankie Venom of Teenage Head. With great respect and a sense of HUGE loss I say good bye to a true legend and a real bud... Frank. For Family, Gordie, Steve, Nick, Dave, Donny, Sam, and many others... what a great loss. Heavy heart and fond memories of the king of Canada's punk/pop scene. A true icon and a real friend. Missed already.

I can barely believe it! RIP.”



Sven Gali covered Teenage Head’s ‘Disgusteen’ on their self-titled 1992 debut album. Frankie Venom appeared on the track for the infamous exorcism.
