    More Details Hide Details He was taken to a hospital but reportedly left before seeing a doctor, after waiting several hours and assuming he was not injured. Reports indicate that he died in his sleep as the result of a concussion. Dave Tregunna said that Bators, a fan of rock legend Jim Morrison, had earlier requested that his ashes be spread over Morrison's Paris grave and that his girlfriend complied. In the director's commentary of the film Polyester, which starred Bators, the director and producer John Waters stated that Bators' girlfriend Caroline confessed to him that she snorted a portion of Stiv's ashes to be closer to him. In 2013, an American made motion picture titled CBGB was released to theaters. The Dead Boys were featured as one of the seminal punk bands that got their start at the CBGB club, and were first managed by Hilly Kristal. Bators is portrayed by actor Justin Bartha, best known for his role in The Hangover films.

To this end, and usually with first-wave punk rock veterans in tow, he recorded several singles, many of which were unreleased, and an LP, Disconnected, which was released in 1980.
