Lynn Strait & Dobbs

Lynn Strait was the lead singer of alternative rock band, Snot.  Formed in 1995, Snot quickly built a sizable following due to their seamless blend of punk, funk and metal.  The band was soon signed to Geffen Records who released their debut album, Get Some in 1997.  On December 11, 1998, Strait was driving along a Southern California highway with his dog, Dobbs who had appeared in the band’s video and on their album cover.  While exiting the freeway, Strait found himself in the middle of a six-car accident.  A truck crashed into Strait’s vehicle, killing him and Dobbs at the scene.  Lynn Strait was just 30 years old when he died.
