Todd Crew (September 2, 1965 - July 18, 1987) was an Oakland native that had dreams of becoming a rock 'n roll star.  Instead, he died at the age of 21 after partying in a Milford Plaza Hotel hotel room in New York City with Slash (Guns ‘n’ Roses) and porn star Lois Ayres.

Crew's career began in the early 1980's when he was the bassist for the local hard rock glam bands Jetboy (formed 1983) and The Drunk Fux.

At the time of his death Crew was traveling with the band Guns ‘n’ Roses, working for Slash as a roadie. 

Todd Crew died of a heroin overdose after drinking 18 hours straight.  He is buried in Mountain View Cemetery.
