Teresa Marie Ryan (January 4, 1958 - January 16, 2019), better known by her stage name Lorna Doom, was an American musician best known as the bass guitarist for the punk rock band the Germs from 1976-1980 and again after they got back together from 2005-2009.
Doom was a friend of The Germs' founders Darby Crash and Pat Smear and joined despite lack of musical ability, having answered a flyer looking for "two untalented girls" with Belinda Carlisle. She quit the band originally in 1980 after Crash fired Don Bolles, the band's drummer. After Crash's death, Doom moved from California to New York City where she lived until the late 1990s.
...she was an under-rated musician and, in my mind, quite a presence on the instrument. The Germs were a band that influenced far more people than ever heard them live, and I think Lorna's contribution lives on in that way.
