Lori Black Bass guitar Player

Lori Black, (born April 9, 1954) at Santa Monica, California also known as Lorax, is the daughter of Shirley Temple Black and Charles Alden Black. She played bass guitar for Clown Alley and for The Melvins. It was mistakenly reported that Lori now works as a high school librarian in San Francisco with a grown daughter of her own, but that is in error. That San Francisco librarian is Lori's sister, Susan Black Falaschi, who is Shirley Temple Black's other daughter.

The Melvins are an American heavy metal band that formed in 1983. They usually perform as a trio, but in recent years have performed as a four piece with two drummers. Since 1984, singer and guitarist Buzz Osborne and drummer Dale Crover have been the band's ongoing members. The band was named after a supervisor at a Thriftway in Montesano, Washington, where Osborne also worked as a clerk. "Melvin" was despised by other employees, and the band's members felt it to be an appropriately ridiculous name. The Melvins' music is influenced by Black Flag's mix of punk and metal on their album My War, and other slow punk acts like Swans, Flipper and Wipers, but also by some hard rock and metal bands such as Kiss and Alice Cooper; however, their idiosyncratic approach, bizarre sense of humor, and experimentation make neat categorization difficult. Buzzo has also stated that his guitar playing is more influenced by Black Flag than Black Sabbath, with whom they are often compared. They often favor very slow tempos, and their sludgy sound was a strong influence on grunge music, especially Nirvana, Soundgarden, Green River, and many other bands from Seattle.
