Bianca from Betty Blowtorch Killed in an accident

I was hoping this was a rumour , RIP Bianca
bianca Halstead (a.k.a Bianca Butthole), bassist/singer
for Hollywood hard rockers Betty Blowtorch was killed around 5:30am this morning
in a car accident in New Orleans. The driver of the car was William McAllister,
reportedly a correspondent for Metal Sludge. According to Chris Lee from the
New Orleans band Supagroup, who was with Bianca up until she left with McAllister,
McAllister and Bianca left the El Matador Lounge near on Decatur Street after
a night of post-gig partying with tourmates Nashville Pussy following their
gig at the Howlin' Wolf. “They were driving on the I10 toward Kinner in
a ’86 Corvette when McAllister lost control of the wheel and the car spun
around. They were sideswiped by another car on Bianca’s side and she was
killed instantly. McAllister is be held by New Orleans police and is facing
criminal charges. The two passengers in the other car have been hospitalized.”
A local news story on the incident reported today that their car jumped the
median and swerved into oncoming traffic before being hit. Sources say McAllister
appeared inebriated, though Bianca has been sober for 10 years. </b></font></p>

According to Lee, the members of Supagroup had dinner
with Bianca earlier that evening, closed out the El Matador with a late night
of socializing, stopped by a another bar for a minute, and then everyone went
their separate ways, with McAllister offering Bianca a ride home.
