Dublin Death Patrol Re-Emerges!

Friday The 13th Dublin Death Patrol Re-Emerges From The Bay Area Thrash Scene!!! 

The  collaboration of long time friends and members of  the Dublin Death Patrol (DDP) Testament Vocalist Chuck Billy originally teamed up with fellow Dublin California ragers;  Willy Lange (Rampage, Laaz Rockit),  Steve ZETRO Souza (Original Testament Vocalist/Exodus Vocalist) and three of the  Billy Brother s as well as some other local Dublin boys. The seeds were planted in or about 1980 with a bay area thrash band called Dublin Death PatrolRampage featuring neighborhood kids from Dublin California, Chuck Billy with his brother Andy Billy, Greg Bustamante, Ernie Boehm and Willie Lange. The guys were about 18 years old and had all known each other since they were about 5.  The guys grew up listening  to a variety of bands from Zepplin, Kiss, Aerosmith to The Dead Kennedys and The Sex Pistols; and were influenced by the sounds of the  late 70’s and early 80’s.  This  time period was a great time for a bunch of kids who lived out in the burbs, and the boys from Dublin with their long hair and their naïve attitudes would go to the clubs to rage and see The Dead Kennedy’s and  whatever punk shows that  trails through the Bay area.    Willie Lange recalls,  “ We learned quickly that people in the big city were a little different”. The boys from Dublin got into more than a few fights before any reputation was established and hence the Dublin Death Patrol was born. Most of the guys that comprised the “Patrol” were big boys with quite an edge to them. Willy states, “We were out to make a name for ourselves and word spread quick that we were not to be fucked with!  

One legendary incident that gets brought up (and laughed about) is the time that Willy Lange was playing his first gig with Laaz Rockit in the  early 1980’s and The boy’s from Metallica were doing a radio show with Ron Quintana on a college station, Willy remembers, “ Everybody used to listen to Ron on KUSF in the beginning of what now is known has the famous Bay Area Metal scene of the early eighties. Ron was talking about our show that night and the fact it was my first gig with Laaz. Lars and James were making fun of my name calling me Lilly Wang. People were calling me and telling me this. Word got back to James and Lars that the “Patrol” were about to inflict maximum damage on them”.  One day Chuck Billy and Greg Bustamante and Willy Lange were kicking back at their apartment when they received a call from Lars and he was begging that the DDP didn’t fuck them up because they didn’t mean any disrespect and didn’t have insurance. Willy told Lars, “We never had any intention of fuckin with them and that we were totally cool. That was the kind of reputation we had.”
