Deep Diving on early New wave band B52s. Amazed at contribution of founding guitarist Ricky Wilson whose unortodox tunings and playing were so key to the early sound. Ricky tragically died in 1985. but his legend is forever.. Spect! Posted @withregram • @losangelespunkrocker Capitol TheatreThe #B52s (styled as The B-52's prior to 2008) are an American #newwave band formed in #Athens #Georgia in 1976. The original line-up consisted of #FredSchneider (vocals, percussion), #KatePierson (vocals, keyboards), #CindyWilson (vocals, percussion), #RickyWilson (guitar), and #KeithStrickland (drums, guitar, keyboards). Ricky Wilson died from AIDS-related illness in 1985, and Strickland switched from drums to lead guitar.
