Fundraiser started for Electric Angels frontman Shane who is recovering from three liver transplants
A fundraiser titled $HANE’s TRiggins Triple Liver Transplant Extravaganza! has been started via Facebook for Electric Angels frontman Shane (also known as Tommy Riggins) who is recovering from three liver transplants. As of press time, $491 has been raised out of the $12,587 goal.
Shane describes his medical difficulties as follows on the Fundraiser page (with slight edits): “I’ve been in the hospital for a long time. I had a liver transplant… 1st one (didn’t work). Had a 2nd transplant (didn’t work). Had a 3rd. Requested the Sex Pistols be played during surgery ( living with #3 now)! Even Hannibal Lecter couldn’t handle 3 livers in one week!… Back home now. Sober since 10/13/2020… Dennis Luo (https://www.facebook.com/dennisluo9) is taking care of me and will be handling my affairs. Feel free to contact him on Facebook… 1 person who donates will be chosen at random and will receive a call from me, and an autographed copy of Electric Angels‘ “Lost In The Atlantic“! … Thanks y’all !”
Sleaze Roxx stated the following in its review of Lost In The Atlantic:
“The name Electric Angels didn’t ring a bell with me but guitarist Ryan Roxie‘s name sure did as I have grown to know him as one of Alice Cooper‘s stellar cast of guitarists. I was actually a little surprised to find out that Roxie was part of Electric Angels because I hadn’t realized that the guitarist is already in his early ’50s. With that information in mind, it starts to make sense that a young Roxie would be part of LA’s Sunset Strip in the early ’90s. While Roxie may be the one Electric Angels band member that I am familiar with, it’s actually singer Shane (kind of odd for him to simply rely on a generic name and not offer a last name for his fans when the rest of his bandmates do) who steals the show on Electric Angels‘ Lost In The Atlantic. Shane‘s voice is crystal clear and really carries most of the tracks.”
