Die Jimmy Webb, a key figure of the punk-aesthetic of the american


Madrid, 16 apr (EFE).- The stylist american Jimmy Webb, a key element in the definition of punk aesthetics that counted among its customers with characters like Iggy Pop, or Debbie Harry, has died at age 62 due to cancer.

The news, confirmed to Rolling Stone by his friend, Heart Montalbano, has filled the social networks in the last hours, with reactions and condolences from the staff of the american rock, among which was a celebrity.

“My colleague, the man most sweet and pure punk. Jimmy has such a story behind her back and my family and I feel honored to have been part of her triumphant story. We love you and miss you”, has left written for example in the last hours, Duff McKagan, a member of Guns N Roses.

Webb coined its fame as the party responsible from the 70s of one of the meccas of the fashion punk of the East Village of New York, Trash & Vaudeville, before mounting in 2017 his own boutique, I Need More, to whose front was until his death.

From that position, he helped to shape the image of the great figures of the rock, which also included Joan Jett, Slash, Joey Ramone and Alice Cooper, transcending to the point of converting its stores in a landmark musical that spent stars of other genres such as Madonna or Beyonce. EFE
