Michael Dempsey punk entrepreneur – death


In early December, 1981, the former manager of The Adverts – Michael Dempsey – died in quite unusual circumstances.  He was apparently changing a light bulb in a stairwell while standing on a chair when he fell…down the aforementioned stairwell, puncturing his liver according to reports at the time.  A very sad end to one of the movers and shakers of punk.
