Quine, Robert

▪ 2005

      American guitarist (b. Dec. 30, 1942, Akron, Ohio—d. found dead May 31, 2004, New York, N.Y.), was a distinctive stylist best remembered for his contribution as a member of the protopunk band the Voidoids (led by Richard Hell), particularly on Blank Generation, and for his work on albums by Lou Reed. Quine was older and more technically proficient than most punk musicians, and he was much influenced by the Velvet Underground (his bootlegged tapes of their concerts were commercially released in 2003), Ritchie Valens, and Hank Marvin. Quine also recorded with Marianne Faithfull, Tom Waits, and Matthew Sweet. Deeply despondent over the death of his wife some months earlier, Quine took his own life.
