Hellion Comments On Death Of Former Bass Player Teddy Days

Vocalist Ann Boleyn of California act Hellion has posted the following message online about the death of former bass player Teddy Days:

"More disturbing news is coming out concerning the death of former Hellion bassist, Teddy Days. Teddy's friends first learned of Teddy's death yesterday after an obituary was posted in an on-line newspaper. The obituary stated that Teddy died on July 10, 2013, but no cause of death was listed. Nor was there any explanation for the delay in the reporting of Teddy's death.

"Late last night, someone posted that the cause of death was suicide and that he had been suffering from depression. Initially friends speculated that the timing of Teddy's death, on July 10, 2013, may have had to do Ronnie James Dio's birthday. Others speculated that, since Teddy had been monitoring postings on Facebook via a pseudonym 'Slade Sin,' which was not recognized by most of his friends, that he may have been upset by some posts. None of those theories made any sense to me, and I removed them from my page and Hellion's pages, especially if they blamed other musicians or incidents that happened in the 1980s and 1990s.

"A few moments ago Teddy's long-time friend, Pat 'PK' Kelley posted new information: 'I am so sorry to have to tell you this - On Wednesday July 10th Teddy had a incident with the police. He had been in a serious car accident a few months before and had family problems. He became erratic and extremely depressed. He ended up in a 5 hour stand off with the police brandishing a shotgun. He laid down in his hearse and called it quits. It is unknown at this time if his passing was from the police or by his choice. Please contact any of his friends that you know - he destroyed his phone and I don't really know his LA circle.'

"I am a civil rights attorney and would like to find out the truth of what happened to Teddy Days. If anyone has any information, please contact me at: ewrenaissance@yahoo.com."

Wow. This is so sad. Teddy was such a nice guy. He pretty much disappeared from the scene. Always wondered what happened to him.

Teddy had been active making music and some awesome art for the last eight years here in the desert. He suffered with bi-polar and established his Slade Sin personality for performances ."Bullet Train" was the song he wrote and performed for his beloved fallen bro, J.D. Richards. There were many more dedications in his writing and he kept his circle pretty tight. He was a artist and loved the spotlight in performance, however his persona began to become him more thru the years, and was difficult for him to have people stay close. He did love to be mysterious, and was a prankster!! LOL..hence the difficulty to find him! May I suggest we not try to get all the details of the what & why, tho knowing & liking a person makes us curious...can we come together here and send songs for his soul, he needs peace, finally...his choice. Thanks to all of you who love~
