According to the Dictators Forever, Forever Dictators blog, former THE DICTATORS and TWISTED SISTER drummer Richard Teeter has died at the age of 61.

Teeter joined TWISTED SISTER in December 1980 as the replacement for Tony Petri, who left the group for THE PLASMATICS. In April 1981, Teeter — who never appeared on any studio releases from TWISTED SISTER — was replaced by "Fast" Joey Brighton, who was in turn replaced by A.J. Pero from CITIES, another unsigned band with local fame.

Teeter became a member of THE DICTATORS in 1976 and was featured on their albums "Manifest Destiny" (1977) and "Bloodbrothers" (1978) before exiting the band in 1979.
