The original lead singer of that group before he died and Gwen took over

how did he die?

…and are there any songs of theirs online with him as lead?

*edit*


Newer fans of No Doubt might not know that the original lead singer was a man by the name of John Spence. He was a friend and co-worker of Gwen's brother, Eric Stefani, and in 1986, the duo decided to form No Doubt on a whim, with Spence inspiring the name because he often said, "no doubt," according to Rolling Stone. As Eric told the OC Register, Gwen Stefani only occasionally did backing vocals.

Sadly, in December 1987, John Spence died by suicide, just a few weeks before No Doubt (in its original lineup) was scheduled to perform at an iconic music venue in Los Angeles. "I guess I didn't really know him [Spence]," Eric shared with the OC Register. "He was hurting so badly that he couldn't talk to anyone about it." No Doubt disbanded for a brief period to regroup, and while Alan Meade briefly took over the lead vocals, he ultimately left the band. In 1988, Gwen Stefani got the spot. "She tends to be shy by nature," Eric Carpenter, another ex-band member, revealed to People (via Interview Magazine). "It took a lot of convincing."

probably won’t be any of those early songs online since he died in the late 80s

*edit*

think I found one…

My Jamaican friend’s mom hated her every time she came on tv.

Her: “me can’t stand that culture vulture. That ugly little Jewish girl.”

Me: “I don’t think she’s Jewish.”

Her: “me duh care bout her origins. She looks like dem vulture Jews deh!”

Her son: :snoop:

Me: :pachaha:

Edit: and anytime Usher was on the tv:

Her: “why this chichi man pon de screen? Acting like he like women?”

:russ: Her rants were legendary. Should’ve made her own YouTube channel.
