John Stabb Dies at 54

05.09.16

Our good friend John Stabb died on Saturday, May 7th at the age of 54. The cause of death was stomach cancer. Born John Dukes Schroeder, Stabb was one of the original D.C. punks. He formed G.I. in 1980 with John Barry, Brian Gay, and Mark Alberstadt and the band’s debut EP, Legless Bull (released in the fall of 1981), would become Dischord’s fourth release. Though Government Issue split up 1989, Stabb continued to make music throughout his life, performing and recording in bands like Weatherhead, Betty Blue, Factory Incident and History Repeated. We are deeply saddened by the news of his passing and send our thoughts to his wife, Mina, and his friends. John was a sweet person and will be missed.
