Ron Reyes

Ron Reyes was my favorite Black Flag singer. He walked away from Black Flag at a show at the Fleetwood in Redondo Beach in 1980, disgusted by the ever-increasing dumb violence of the crowds. I consider this event to be punk rock's Altamont, and I think Reyes was completely right to leave when he did.

Live footage & interview from Decline of Western Civilization:

(Note the "Remember the Altamont" graffiti!)
