Lorna Doom, the bassist of the seminal Los Angeles punk band Germs, has died. Her former bandmate, drummer Don Bolles, confirmed her passing in a Facebook comment left under a post that simply stated "Lorna", saying, "She left this mortal coil today around 1". A cause of death was not immediately available. Doom's age, however, is unclear, though some publications reported she was 61.

Born Teresa Ryan, Doom joined the Germs - whose classic lineup was rounded out by singer Darby Crash and guitarist Pat Smear, who later played with Nirvana and is now in Foo Fighters - in April 1976.

Doom, whose real name is Teresa Ryan, joined The Germs in the 1970s. The band's drummer at the time was Belinda Carlisle (known as Dottie Danger in those days) before her move to the Go Gos. Following various lineup switches, Bolles eventually took over on drums and Germs released their only full-length, the Joan Jett-produced (GI), in 1979. In 2005, however, Lorna Doom, Pat Smear and Don Bolles were joined onstage by actor Shane West for a Germs reunion show after West was cast to play Crash in the biopic What We Do Is Secret (which was named after a Germs song).
