LOVE STRICKEN DEMISE / Bio

Started by Texas native Billy Blair, Billy was involved in many big projects in his career of entertainment. Fronted the shock rock band Surgeon General in the early 2000’s where it took him opening up for big acts like KISS, Poison, Sammy Hagar, David Lee Roth and Cinderella. He then went thru numerous bands like Mother Truckin Skull Diggers, White Collar Ghetto and the most recent, Messer, which brought a lot of hype in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and opened for nationals like George Lynch, Flaw and Earshot. Speaking of Earshot, Billy went to play bass for the national L.A. band during ’08 where he would get a taste of the national lime light and landing him an endorsement with Dean Guitars. Soon after that, Billy would land roles in movies, (which he is also an actor for now 13 years), such as the Syfy movie, Mongolian Death Worm, Jonah Hex and Robert Rodriguez’s slasher movie, Machete.

Billy then turned to his old drummer from MTSD/White Collar Ghetto, Rico and forms this new band. Rico was in several local bands such as Spearing Britney, EKG, Mind Gallery and KRADL. Also opening for nationals along with Billy in MTSD/WCG such as Premier 55, UFO, ACCEPT and King’s X.

Then Billy would turn to his old friend Nikki McKibbin, who was on the first season of American Idol. She would be one of the top 3 contestants along side with Kelly Clarkson. Nikki would soon be the queen of reality shows such as Fear Factor and the most recent Celebrity Rehab followed by Sober House. She fronted some big name local bands in Texas including Downside, Rivithead and Mother Truckin Skulldiggers. Nikki also fronts her main band, Wicked Attraction, which have played the club circuit and many festivals. She also worked with Billy and Rico in the past writing a songs for her solo career such as Naked Inside and The Lie, (which you can also see videos of the songs on You tube).

Then they would find their bass player, Holly Wood. New to the music scene; she had played guitar for over 13 years; and swapped over to bass after Billy invited her to play in the band. She is Billy’s hair stylist and has been master of ceremonies for various events. Doing hair for the Bush family, (yes the Presidents) and other celebrity’s.

Together they are Love Stricken Demise (LSD). Coming out with their first single, Celebrity High
