Guitarist for the Bay Area punk band the Dead Kennedys. Real name is Ray Pepperell.
Considered to be one of the most underrated guitarists among the punk scene due to his incredible surf guitar skills and his unique unorthodox guitar sound. Also has created some of the baddest ass riffs of all time with Jelloa Biafra such as "Let's Lynch The Landlord", "MTV Get Off The Air", "Life Sentence", "Holiday In Cambodia" and "Police Truck".
Has written with the Dead Kennedys "Your Emotions", "Do The Slag", "At My Job" and a few others.
Lately is involved in a big lawsuit with the other members of the band in trying to steal the rights of the entire Dead Kennedys catalog from frontman Jello Biafra. He's also being blasted by many loyal Dead Kennedys fans as "selling out" and Has put out "lost live" albums such as "Mutiny On The Bay" which are bad examples of the band in their prime.
Also tried to use "Holiday In Cambodia" in a Levi's khaki pants commercial without prior consent.
Easy Bay Ray rocks on the guitar, but lately has sold out to try and make a dollar in the name for the band. Also The Dead Kennedys WITHOUT Jello isn't the Dead Kennedys.
