Life, Sex & Death was a hard rock band that achieved minor success in the early 1990s. Life, Sex & Death played in clubs across the United States including Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia and many other major city locations.
They released one major label album in 1992 called The Silent Majority. Two of their songs appeared on the Beavis and Butt-head TV show, "Tank" and "School's for Fools". They were known for the antics of their lead singer Stanley (aka Chris Stann), who dressed in dirty clothes and wandered around the audience before gigs, mumbling incoherently. A popular rumor was that he was a homeless man who the band had recruited to sing. In reality he comes from an extremely wealthy family in Chicago.
The band had its origins from previous bands Bottoms UP and US Circus, featuring core members Chris Stann, Alex Kane, Brian Horak and Dave Andre. After various lineup changes which included Vince Serpico on drums, Dennis Fridae and Mark Rack on guitars and musical directions, Andre left and they added a new element to the sound with the addition of Billy Gar, who played 12- and 8-string basses. By 1991, they headed west to California and did numerous gigs on the then red hot LA scene. They were eventually signed by Warner Brothers. They then retreated to the Cains Ballroom in Oklahoma and recorded The Silent Majority with producers John Purdell and Duane Baron, who had worked with numerous metal acts such as Ozzy Osbourne and L.A. Guns. They also filmed some promos and the band hit the road in support of this. The CD was released early 1992 and the band found itself both opening and headlining shows across the USA. However being a low priority act at Warner Brothers the tour was a financial disaster and was aborted. Despite generally positive reviews the record sold 90,000copies and they were dropped by Warners in 1993. The lack of success eventually led to all of the original members except Stanley leaving and eventually LSD was dissolved.
