Kira Roessler, bassist for Black Flag, backstage circa 1984.
From her wikipedia page:
“While sitting in with L.A. punk group DC3, members of Black Flag heard her playing, which led to her being asked to join Black Flag to replace founding member Chuck Dukowski. Roessler was majoring in applied engineering at UCLA, and Black Flag’s subsequent tours were worked around her school schedule, which was a condition for her to join the band. Her bass playing was featured on five of Black Flag’s studio albums. She remained in the band until completing touring behind their album In My Head in the autumn of 1985, then graduated UCLA in 1986.”

CARCASS lineup (1986–1990) Jeff Walker - vocals, bass guitar; Bill Steer - vocals, lead guitar; Ken Owen - drums, studio vocal.
Here’s a rare pic for you! Jeff Walker, Michael Amott & Chuck Schuldiner in London, this was taken during the DEATH “Extravaganza of Europe” Tour when CARCASS played on a few dates, it was supposed to be PESTILENCE on support but they had to pull out of part of the tour due to visa problems. I guess I was one of the lucky ones who seen this tour when it hit Glasgow…good memories indeed!
