A pretty sick punk musician. He was apart of the New York punk scene and played at CBGB's with The Ramones and The Dead Boys. He was one of the most influential punk icons of all time and was said to have created the punk look (spiked hair, ripped/torn clothes). He left High School with a friend and played with the Heartbreakers. Then he went on to play his own music with the Voidoids. Check out the songs "The Kid With the Replaceable Head", "Blank Generation", and "Love comes in Spurts".
The Sex Pistols would probably be a jazz band if it werent for Richard Hell.
