dear Maggie-

yes. we're going into the studio (Saxon Sound in Rochester) to begin our new cd, my first with the skeleton crew. It will include all the original material we are performing live, mostly new tunes I wrote with Kim. one by the drummer bob. 2 I resurrected from the past. also includes 'if you have ghosts' by roky erickson. very excited. currently in pre-production.

Subject: RE: Your new CD

Dear Maggie, Yes, we're now at work on the new cd. We've got a dozen rhythm tracks, mostly new stuff we wrote. I think it's some of my best writing. the rough tracks sound kickass. One track, Mutant Reaction, made the hair stand up on everybody's arms. We're raising funds for overdubs.

The cd will be mixed by Albert Bouchard (original Blue Oyster Cult drummer), my friend for 32 years, and a big influence on me.

Some of the tunes are Graveyard Down The Road, Five Dollar Fantasy,And Its A Drag, If You Have Ghosts,
Useless,A Lie Takes A Lie, Times Square Ain't There, Relentless, Holy Land

sorry it took so long to respond. I'm just getting the knack of this web page thing. Albert would call me a "newbie". where do you live? Helen

Subject: what a wonderful person

I was driving to a friends house this evening and I was listening to WICB's home brew and heard Taz say that he was going to play a song by Helen Wheels in her remembrance, because she had passed away yesterday. I was in shock. I knew Helen, not from her music, but as a friend.
I met her while I was working at the YMCA in Ithaca. I couldn't believe how such a small person can look like they could kick so much ass! I would work at the front desk and she would come down from the fitness room when she wasn't training anyone and we would talk about anything and everything. She was such a sweetheart. I would ask her about her musical career and just stare at her in amazement at the life this woman has led. After I got to know her a little better, she told me about her neck problems and how she had to have an operation. But she didn't convey the seriousness of it to me. I ran into Helen less than two weeks ago at the Y. She was her regular bright, shining self. I didn't know it would be the last time I would see her. I would have given her the biggest hug and kiss.
Helen Wheels was my friend. I will never forget meeting her and having a chance to get to know her. She will be missed by many people, including myself.
We Love You Helen.

I was very saddened to learn of Helen's passing. I can't say I ever knew her, but as a big fan of Blue Oyster Cult, I am well aware of her contributions to that band, as well as Albert Bouchard's band, "The Brain Surgeons". "Tattoo Vampire" is one of BOC's best tunes. I am listening to her CD *Archetype* in her memory right now.

I wish all of her family and friends, and those that knew her my sincere condolences for their loss.

And to Helen, I hope you are in a better place - and thanks for making my place here a better one with your music.

I feel lucky to have been able to see Helen and the Crew in concert. She contributed a lot to the intelligent toughness of BOC and The Brain Surgeons. And her own material is just as powerful. I'll end with a sentiment she wrote on my copy of Archetype that seems somewhat fitting, "Rock On!"

Subject: My heartfelt condolances

I was so sorry , shocked and mostly mad when I read Helen had died. I had not met Helen, but am a long time fan of her music . I follow with interest and concern , news of the circle of BOC people, present and past. I had hoped to make it to New york one day and see one of those great shows, with Helen, The Brain Surgeons and the X Bros. What an ultimate bummer for so many, that Helen has died.

This is not to deflect from Helen's passing now, but I want to add that I am going through a tremedous loss at the death of my godson last June in a pipleine explosion. I feel very sensitive to tragedy , to accidental and needless deaths. I am mostly angry about Helen's death. It does really just piss me off to think that a vibrant, beautiful and talented woman, could have her life taken . I don't know the deatils and its none of my bussiness....but its looking like someone messed up . It makes me angry and it makes me so sad for the loved ones she left behind, to face not only her passing, but the shock seems so cruel and unfair. I am so sorry

I must sound crazy here....but I do want you to know, that there's one person in the west here, that sends her support and love, and I'll hold the anger too. The journey ahead will be a long one for Helen's loved ones. May you be graced by her spirit and the many memories of her life that you hold dear.
love,
Briz

Subject: Helen will ALWAYS ROCK ON!!!

I have only just learned of Helen's death. I am in shock and disbelief and very much devastated, truly blown away. My heart goes out to her family, friends, and fans. What went so terribly wrong that this shining bright light could be extinguished? Her passing is too soon, too sudden and should not be.
Helen had been a major part of my life for many years. I just simply adored her and her music. Wherever she played I was there; the Ritz, CBGB's, Brighton Bar-countless places, names of which have been forgotten. I even found myself in some of her online photos, rocking and grooving to that muscle rock. Many times I have told the story of driving to Boston in the equipment van with Vinnie, Yik and a white German Shepherd named Cloud following her Porsche with Morrongiello at the wheel (and he was loving that German precision driving machine). I have no idea of the name of the club she played up there, I just had to be there. Passing up staying at the hotel with the funky escalators, only to dine at some bizarre café with Lee et al, on the ride home, I slept curled up on a Marshall amp. I had followed Helen and had been her loyal fan through many states (CT, NY, NJ, PA, MA…) and through many altered states of mind. I have many wonderful, fabulous memories of Helen, her music, her muscles, her shit-eating grin, her kick ass attitude, just her. I had been there for the different Helen Wheel band members; from Riggs, Morrongiello, Bouchard , Sargent Rock, Vasta, Lee…And yes, Helen, of course I still have the signed photo you sent me!
Though, for whatever reason we had lost contact, our worlds no longer crossed. Helen stopped playing, I had stopped rockin??, I don't know or remember when. I have always thought of Helen, often with fond memories (bringing a cooler fill of Haagen-Daz to Albert's birthday party and my Wheelie party in my mobile home for that gig in Totowa). Helen approved of my cats of which I named one after her. Thus, those in the cat fancy also knew of our Helen as I would gladly explain the name origin and show off the CD 'Archetype'. The little feline Helen Wheels went on to be best in region and earned herself an international award, as of course it should be. When 'little Helen Wheels' received her international award, the award presenter said, "and 19th Best International Household Pet Kitten goes to, and I just love this name… HELEN WHEELS!"
After many years, through the CD Helen sent Morrongiello, I found her again. I was telling her all about the CDC invading my home and she telling me about the horse she that she was riding. Just this past year, thankfully, Helen played good ol' CB's again and I made the trek to see her twice (just like the old days). I was fortunate enough to see her again, say hello, how the hell are ya???. Hey, Skeleton Crew! you guys (and gal) did her justice. Helen always did surround herself with world class musicians. Helen looked fab in leather (what else?). I didn't get the chance to meet all the band members but I do remember Kim (smoking!) and the string of naked Barbie dolls. I always meant to ask what was up with the doll's head on a spike (very Izzard). Showed Helen pics of 'little Helen.' Helen still with her fabulous set of wheels , kicking butt, wearing leather, sweating bullets on me, no problem.
And then we fell out of touch again. I knew her website had been down for a bit. I just went to check in on her, to see if maybe Helen would be back at CB's as I had been there for Ian hunter's kids recently. But then I saw. I did not believe. This is not real. Helen was so very much real. I truly wish I had been there for her, for the family, for me, to do something. To scream, to cry, to hug someone who will miss her and love her, who knows, who understands WHAT??? WHY??? Helen, how can you be gone-YOU WERE A FUCKIN' ROCK! HOW CAN THIS BE!! WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS WORLD???
Peter, if you read this, I am so very sorry, please accept my deepest condolences, sorrow and sympathy. I want to absorb some of the pain for you and take it away. I am afraid I missed any memorials, I want to be there, I need to be there. Please, let me know. She was so vibrant, so full of life!! She helped me to be me. I feel a part of me has died and has gone with Helen, however, I know of piece of Helen is my heart for now and always and beyond. My heart is crying for you Helen and for all those those you loved you. This just should not be.
I CAN FEEL THE THUNDER, I CAN HEAR THE ROAR
You are embedded in me Helen, forever

the first time i ever met Helen i was on my bike trying to make it to a friends house but i took a wrong turn. Helen lived prety close to my house but i didnt know who she was or anything. but i was really lost so i stoped to ask for directions. Imediatly she let me into her house, offered me food and drinks. She told me how she was about to get married and how she's so exited about her new house that she just moved in. She never even mentiond that she was a super star. the next day i went to the store my mom works at and Helen was there. Apparently, my mom had become great friends with her and it was just a twist of fate that i got to meet her. I hope anyone that reads this now likes her a little more, because i will never forget how kind she was to a complete stranger.

Subject: Remembering Helen Wheels

My sincere condolences to Helen's family - Peter, Allan,
Ann and Jim...

I am still in a shock over the news of Helen's death.

I only met her briefly, while I enjoyed the hospitality
of her entire family during a research visit to New York.
I never met a more close-knit, life-loving, and humor-filled
family. Her brother, Peter Robbins, had invited me to
stay at the house he shared with Helen. It was only after
I met her that I realized that I had probably seen her
in the late seventies at the Hot Club in Philadlphia. It didn't
take me long after arriving at Peter and Helen's house
to realize that Helen was a one-of-a-kind-type person.
As is Peter! We talked and laughed the whole time I was
there. I'll always remember when Peter received a videotape
from and English TV show for which he had been interviewed
about his ground-breaking UFO book "Left at East Gate".

He plugged it into the VCR and invited me and Helen to
watch his Big Moment, his brush with fame. As the show
progressed, there was no sign of Peter or the two-hours of
interview he did in England. A few segments passed without
any sign of Peter; instead the show kept returning to this
guy with these life-size green ET puppets, wobbling around
and looking ridiculous. Finally they cut to Peter, who was given
approximately 90 seconds of air time, then back to the alien puppets.

Peter, a theatrical sort of person, was understandably chagrinned to
find himself upstaged by puppets. (Recently, the movie,
"Being John Malkovich" expanded on this theme.) Helen, with a
twinkle in her eye, intones, "Those... puppets... are really *good*,
don't you think so, Peter?" Then she burst out in raucous laughter.
Peter, who is nothing if not a good sport, played along, and concurred,
yes, they were pretty good puppets... They went back and forth like a brother-sister
version of the Smothers Brothers and I thought
I'd choke myself from laughing.

I feel lucky to have known her just that one week, and I'll always
remember her as a beautiful, light-hearted woman with a great sense
of humor, who didn't have a mean bone in her body.

Dear William,

I'm not quite sure how to do this e-mail.
I believe you know who I am.
Helen was the most extaordinary person I have
ever known. I too loved /loves her dearly.

The last time I spoke with Helen was on
October 28th. When Peter phoned me the sky fell
down....in January.

For both of us May 6th will remain a sacred
day.

I have been in contact with Mariah of late.
I hope we can meet some day soon. I am so very
sorry for all you must be going through.

I know you are a very special person.


Truly,
Richard

All the beautiful plants, flowers, and fruits, so alive and thriving. You always knew how to live. You know there are people who live to be 105 years old who don't live the amount that you would in one day. We can all learn from you...Thank you, Matthew. I miss you -

But you called and gave me back any faith I might have lost of late.

Subject: You've got some new company in heaven tonight (Pas

Helen, I'm writing to let you know that your friend or acquaintance Joey Ramone came up there tonight. I-- personally-- don't feel that it's a big loss that he died. But a lot of my friends (including all your's still on earth) are feeling extremely empty. I am here for them because I went through your passing last year, and felt lots of pains.

With Joey, I'm praying he discovers peace and acceptance for the positive missions of others. He wasn't very accepting of many other musicians or people, which seemed mind-blowing to me. He had an extremely successful recording career, and you haven't yet. However you always found the light in so many peoples' talents no matter how uncool they seemed.

I imagine there's a cyberspace in heaven. I think of the human evolution and what wonderful things have happened in this new century that you barely lived to see. I have a STAR TREK-like vision for humankind that we're going to evolve so strongly with technology, human passion and spirituality that we'll be able to communicate with all who live and who have died. And we'll KNOW that we're in communication with them.

I'm one of the few folks I know with a ton of hope. There are so many parts of this world where people are destructive. The bad part of this century is in the streets and in BIG business and government. Lots of cold-hearted people are intensifying negativity here on earth, Helen. Our President has taken steps to mess up relations with former enemies Russia and China despite the fact that predecessors from his own political party worked to achieve positive relations with them. Today the news reported that a Bronx police officer raped a woman. There's lots of other things, as well.

I wish all the elements of the earth would move positive together. Life isn't unfair, but people aren't very ambitious in the right sense of the word.

Teach the people in heaven about dreams and achieving them positively. That way if they come back to earth, they'll be properly motivated.

Seconds ago, this site sparked a a fond memory of Helen. It was in Ithaca, N Y, a few years ago. A good friend and I drove down from the 1000 Islands area of New York State to see tBS and Static Cling at The Haunt. After checking out the local scene on the Commons with Peter Bohevesky, we were treated to a great show and visit with Helen. Between sets, we talked with Helen and had a great time! She is missed.

It's great to see you honored here, Helen, and thank you for taking the time to chat with us. There was always the danger of sounding like the awestruck and insecure SNL Chris Farley character: (Me: "Do you remember when you wrote Tatoo Vampire? That was pretty cool, wasn't it?

I recently heard the very sad news that Helen's close friend, Mariah Aguiar has passed (June 29th, 2005). May Helen welcome her home and reunite on the "other side".

Thank God for cool women like you babes, it was an honor to be your friend and a privilege to have known both of you.

The pain of loss only touches the survivors, and you my dears are free from this.

"We will live again, we will live again", the song keeps rolling in my head as a video plays in my brain of Mariah and Helen, smiling, laughing and loving (in Nirvana ).

Blessed Be

Yes, it was very sad news. I had met Mariah once, when Helen was in the hospital. She seemed like a very nice person, and she will be missed. She is with Helen now, and I bet they are having one Heck of a time!!

Helen,

How I have tried. nothing seems to work. I am so tired of trying. I guess it is useless. I give up Helen,I just give up. there is nothing more I can do or say.

Maybe you are tired of trying too.

Hey, remember the song "Useless"

Helen, it still hurts. You were a big inspiration to me to become a musician with your encouraging words, and I'll never forget you. I've turned a lot of BOC fans on to the live tapes I used to make, and I miss you still.
Love always, Mike

PS Peter gimme a call:) Love you guys!!!!
