Re Styles Dies: Costume Designer, Actress And Singer WIth The Tubes Was 72

Re Styles, who recorded and toured with The Tubes and contributed to their unique stage attire, has died. She was 72 and passed on April 17, according to multiple news accounts.

Born Shirley Macleod in the Netherlands in 1950, she modeled in Penthouse and Playboy, then moved on to appear in Alejandro Jodorowsky’s film The Holy Mountain and Sun Ra’s science fiction film Space Is the Place.

She met The Tubes at an art school show and quickly fell in with the San Francisco-based troupe. By 1975, she was coordinating their clothes and wild stage maneuvers, while appearing onstage herself. In one memorable take, she appeared as heiress Patty Hearst. She also would dress in leather outfits and dance suggestively with lead singer Fee Waybill during the fan-favorite song “Mondo Bondage.”


RIP...

I saw them perform when I was young. They had women with very little clothing dancing on stage. There was no silver pole, but I was impressed...devil smiley

That's very sad. The Tubes are on tour this year I think. I was thinking about seeing them. They're supporting the B-52's.

Never heard of her, but photos of her back in the day remind me of Cyndi Lauper.



It is what it is.
